Mistreated by her two older sisters, and made to do all of the work, a young Algonquin girl becomes so singed and covered with scars that she is called Rough-Face Girl in this Native American variant of the 'persecuted heroine' tale-type, sometimes called the Cinderella story. When her sisters visit the wigwam of the Invisible Being who lives in their village, each hoping to become his wife, they use all of the family's finery, but find that after telling lies, and pretending to see the great hunter, they are sent home in disgrace. Rough-Face Girl then sets out, clothed in the finery provided by the forest, but unlike her sisters her kind heart allows her to truly see the Invisible Being...

Rafe Martin's The Rough-Face Girl is the third retelling of this seemingly widespread tale from the Algonquin peoples of native North America, following upon Terri Cohlene's Little Firefly: An Algonquian Legend and Robert D. San Souci's Sootface: An Ojibwa Cinderella Story, that I have read. I found Martin's telling engaging, and David Shannon's accompanying artwork beautiful, although I think I prefer the San Souci, by just a margin. I do find it interesting, when considering this story, that the heroine's prospective bridegroom seems supernatural, with his bow made of the rainbow, and his sled made of the Milky Way. Is he meant to be a spirit being? Does Rough-Face Girl's union with him have some greater significance, beyond the usual 'kindness is rewarded with connubial bliss' that one sees in this kind of story? I'd love to know more about Martin's specific sources for this telling, but unlike San Souci, he does not provide that information. Still, leaving aside these questions, this is an enjoyable story, one that is paired with strikingly beautiful artwork. Recommended to young folklore enthusiasts, and to readers interested in worldwide variants of the Cinderella story. ( )

The Rough Face Girl is an Algonquin tale of Cinderella. Cinder-meaning burning, the main character has scars and burn marks from tending to the fire and doing the other duties. I enjoy this Native American version that includes the two step-sisters' elaborate clothing of leather, beads, feathers, and moccasins. There is no ball, yet of an "Invisible Being" who is mysterious and is the "prize" desired and to marry. The one who can truly "see" him is of pure heart. The Rough Face Girl does not have the fancy clothes and is laughed at because of her ruined skin. Yet, she remains true on the inside and that is what brings her joy and reciprocity in the end. It's a beautiful tale of good nature from the inside and out. ( )

The Rough Faced Girl is a beautifully illustrated retelling of the Algonquin Indian folklore tale of Cinderella. The story tells of women in a village on the shores of Lake Ontario who would like to marry the Invisible Being. The main characters older sisters go first and are given fine things by their father to impress the Invisible Being, but when it is the younger sisters turn she must use hand-me downs and nature. The book is darkly illustrated and does have some darker themes. But from reading it you will learn more about nature, bravery, and being true to oneself. I love how the words and images describe the beauty of nature and the importance of appreciating that beauty around you. This is a fantastic book to compare to other versions of Cinderella, and to learn more about the folktale of Native Americans. ( )

Based on an Algonquian legend, this Cinderella story is, "in its original form, actually part of a longer and more complex traditional story." Three sisters compete for the love of the Invisible Hunter, who rejects the two beautiful but cruel and hard-hearted sisters for the scarred sister who is beautiful inside. Illustrated with striking full-page, full-color paintings.

AUTHOR’S NOTE
To see good rewarded and evil punished, or justice, is rare. Stories, however, pass on the realities not of the everyday world but of the human heart. One way in which the universal yearning for justice has been kept alive is by the many tales of Cinderella. Indeed, some 1,500 or so versions of the basic Cinderella story-type have been recorded so far. In each, the cruel and thoughtless at last get their just reward, as do those who are kind and good.
The Rough-Face Girl, an Algonquin Indian Cinderella, is, in its original form, actually part of a longer and more complex traditional story. Brief as it is, however, The Rough-Face Girl remains one of the most magical, mysterious, and beautiful of all Cinderellas. Grown on native soil, its mystery is rooted in our own place. I am happy to pass it on to children and parents today.
