About the book "Courage" born from the proposal of one girl

It seems that it was a courageous business decision to publish in 1900 with the cover of "Afro Hair" depicting the prince and Cinderella. A long, long time later, 60 years later, Kennedy began to move for civil rights legislation.

It was a long time ago.

A publisher's ingenuity to get more children to think of it as 'our story'.

This New York publisher, BARSE & HOPKINS, has a statement to this effect in the colophon of the book.

Life seems to be made up of small things. Indeed, looking back, he often finds the little things very interesting and valuable. At the suggestion of a girl, this book was born to scoop out the "accidental gold dust" that comes to life.

The magician in this book also distinguishes from "magic" and gives Cinderella the "glass slipper".

”Last of all the fairy gave her a pair of slippers made of glass, the smallest and prettiest ever seen.”

”Finally, the wizard gave Cinderella a pair of glass shoes, the most beautiful in the world.
