Skilfully interweaving a spellbinding retelling of the Arthurian myths with the parallel story of an ordinary boy in the middle ages, this is the second book in the award-winning trilogy that is a landmark in children’s fiction. Her tale of the "Nightingale and the Rose," on an old folk theme, probably has its origins in the tales of Hans Christian Andersen, who was an admirer and friend of the German Romantics.

"Oh - I've climbed the wrong mountain!" he cried, never for a moment believing he had been lead astray, even as his teeth chattered and he turned blue from the cold. The eel grows so big that it becomes a threat to its owner; it is both benign and malevolent. Moreover, d’Aulnoy and Murat are credited with naming the genre by including the newly coined term es (fairy tale) in the titles of their collections, Les contes des fe es (1697–98) and conte de fe es (1699) respectively.

In Mizuno’s ironic and darkly humorous retelling of the traditional tale, the voluptuous and scantily clad heroine, Cinderalla, works as a waitress in a yakitori (bite-sized pieces of grilled chicken on a skewer) restaurant; she has a stepmother and two stepsisters, but in a nightmarish twist, they are undead.
