Genre: Fairytales Retold Short Story.
When Aschenputtel’s mother dies, her father marries a woman with two daughters of her own. They treat her like a servant and she’s left to sleep on the hearth amongst the ashes, her only friend a little bird that nests in the hazel tree, which grew at her mother’s grave. When the king throws a feast to find his son a bride, Aschenputtel begs to attend. Her family answers her with taunts and impossible tasks. She’s determined to complete them so she can attend the feast.
