John Steptoe's Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters is a wonderful African version of the Cinderella story, but it is his stunning illustrations that really take the book to the next level.  The Zimbabwe region is brought to life in beautiful detail, and I highly recommend the book for children with an interest in Africa, or to anyone who simply enjoys a great fairy tale!
