Cinderella

"The story of Cinderella comes from France. It is about Cinderella who wanted to go to a dance, but her stepmother wouldn't let her. Then her godmother came to see her. She gave Cinderella some beautiful clothes and told her to go to the dance. She also gave her shoes of glass. Cinderella danced with a prince. He thought she was very beautiful.

At 12 o'clock, Cinderella had to come away from the dance. As she ran away, one of her shoes fell off and the prince found it. He knew the shoe was Cinderella's. "I will look for the beautiful girl whose shoe this is and then I will marry her," he said. After seeing many other women, the prince found Cinderella and married her."

This is the story of Cinderella that everyone knows. However, there is one thing wrong with it. The shoe could not have been made of glass. No one could dance in the shoes of glass! Why does the story say that the shoes were made of glass? The answer is that the French word for fur is "vair" and the French word for glass is "verre". The two words have the same sound. People thought they heard the word for “glass" when they really heard the word for "fur". Cinderella had shoes of fur, not shoes of glass!
