When her stepsisters go off to a party with a prince, some kindly pigeons sort Cinderella’s lentils for her and tell her of a magic tree. The tree provides Cinderella with a frock and a carriage so she can attend the party, where the prince falls in love with her. in her haste to leave before midnight, Cinderella leaves her golden slipper behind.
The prince decrees that he will marry whomever the shoe fits, so the stepsisters cut off various parts of their enormous feet to fool him. The pigeons reveal their deception and the prince whisks Cinderella away.
