I love the connections between this story and so many others – to me it points (as always!) at the shared heritage of so many tales. This one’s really beautiful and magical – yes, perhaps because it’s less well known. It combines so many features of various versions of Cinderella – the dresses with the sun, moon and stars can be found in the English version, Tattercoats. And the old woman/fairy godmother is just how I imagined her to be: Pumpkins Tales 2 / A Pair of Slippers. Thanks for sharing this little-known tale!
