    Did you know that in the original story of Cinderella, Cindy wore slippers made of white squirrel fur.
    French writer Charles Perrault retold the Cinderella story in his book "Stories or Tales from Times Past, with Morals" that was published in 1697. Instead of writing that Cinderella wore "pantouffles en vair" (slippers made of white squirrel fur) as written in the old French version of the story, Perrault wrote that Cinderella wore "pantoufles en verre" (slippers made of glass). He confused the two similarly pronounced words and through the ages the mistake was carried. It continued into modern day times. Can you imagine cinderella without her glass slipper???
