On top Cinderella is a beautiful princess, but underneath all of her material possessions lie her actual proletariat self. Perrault masks Cinderella to show that even regular aristocrats are tricked into thinking a regular house worker (Cinderella) can be linked to the aristocracy, based of off her materialistic appearance. The Prince was also “busied in gazing on her the whole night”, so one would come to the consensus that the Prince should have Cinderella 's face engraved into the back of his mind. Though this is not the case, even though Cinderella one the second day comes “dressed more magnificently than before”, the Prince loses his aristocratic Princess, as she is shifted back
I just wanted to go back where I was the prettiest of them all. I asked the mirror, “ Magic mirror where is she, the seven dwarfs cottage is the key.” Meanwhile, the dwarfs saw how a mess there cottage was they were mad and wanted to find who did this. When the dwarves went upstairs they saw how beautiful she was and let her stay. The dwarfs left everyday during the day and they warned her not to open the door. Back to the queen, she was so anger that she just wanted Snow White dead.
In the story Ashputtle she has two stepsisters which is the same as in Cinderella. In both stories both of the stepsisters are very mean to Ashputtle/Cinderella. In the story Ashputtle they said to her, “Get into the kitchen where you belong!” They took away her fine clothes and gave her an old gray dress and wooden shoes to wear. In Cinderella her stepsisters came to her tore off her pearl necklace and ripped apart her dress, both stories the stepsisters hated Ashputtle/Cinderelle. So this would be a similarity between the two stories.
Also in both stories, Cinderella still fits into the slipper and the step-sister are caught for trying to be Cinderella. However in the Disney’s Cinderella everyone lives happily ever after. In contrast, in Grimm’s Cinderella the step-sisters do not live happily ever after instead they are blinded by the birds pecking their eyes out. Another difference between the two stories is in Disney’s Cinderella the two step-sisters try to put their feet into the slipper, but it was obvious that they were both too big, then Cinderella tried it one and it fit just right. However in Grimm’s Cinderella the two step-sisters cut their heels and toes to fit into the slipper.
The stepmother has two daughters who are filled with jealousy and envy. Ever since becoming Cinderella’s stepmother, she has treated Cinderella differently than her two daughters. Cinderella was turned into a servant in her own house, and she could not do anything. When “the king of the castle invited his son to a fancy ball he said he could choose his bride”. However, when “Cinderella” wanted to go to the ball, she could not go because “she does have a suitable dress to go to the ball.” When her two mice friends named “Jacques and Gus”, made her a dress her stepsisters ripped it apart.
After facing terrible dangers including evil witches, goblins, trolls, wolf attacks, fires, and a deadly vine, they are captured by the Evil Queen just as they had finished collecting all but one item: a fairy’s tear. The queen takes the items for herself and when asked why tells Alex and Conner how the love of her life was cursed and became her magic mirror. She tells how he slowly lost his personality and memories until he was finally nothing more than a white mask. In response to the Queen’s sad story, Alex sheds a single tear which the Queen wipes off her cheek and tosses at the rest of the wishing spell items. To Alex and Conner’s surprise, it activates the Wishing Spell and the Queen’s wish was finally fulfilled, but far too late, as the man in the mirror falls limp in her arms and takes his last breath.
Despite the chores and bad treatment being a similarity, the godmother figures and magical transformations are different. To begin with, Cinderella had chores and was treated badly, which was similar in both stories. In the Iraqi version, “As soon as she was mistress of the house the stepmother began to leave all the work for the fisherman's daughter to do. She would not give her stepchild soap to wash her hair and feet, and she fed her nothing but crusts and crumbs. The girl bore this patiently, saying not a word, but she thought ‘I picked up the scorpion with my own hand so I'll save myself with my own mind’” (“Little Red Fish”).
For example, when the sorcerer kidnaps the girls, he just "touches [the girls] and [they] jump into his basket" (Grimms 193). The lack of articulated spells is even more blatant when the third sister finds her two siblings chopped to pieces and she brings them back to life solely by "gathering all their body parts and put[ting] them in their proper places" (Grimms 194). Therefore, even though Tatar affirms that "the spell, curses and charms in the Grimms' collections are the most obvious example of the power of language" (Tatar 60), "Fitcher's bird" shows how even traditional fairy tales recurrently lack spells that "create a real physical change" (Tatar
Out of pity Soaphead Church lies to her telling her that she will have her wish.

Hansel and Gretel were deserted by their father, after he remarried, in the forest because it was either them or their stepmother. The children, later on, met a woman but then appeared to be the wicked witch and there goes the other moral of the story, which is to never trust strangers. There are different morals to the stories that show us what to do and what not to do, for example: don’t go into the forested areas, don’t take confection from strangers, and don’t climb into the broiler. Through this fairy tale, the Grimm Brothers shed light on the severity of child abandonment and cannibalism. The distinctive stories give us stereotypes of good and bad and in addition taking the lessons from Hansel and Gretel.
