The Rough-Face Girl: Children's Book
A scarred face does not prevent the Rough-Face girl from seeing the beauty of the earth, nor does it disguise her beautiful, kind heart.
In this award-winning retelling of a powerful Algonquin Cinderella story, two domineering sisters seek the attention of a "rich, powerful, and supposedly handsome" Invisible Being. In order to marry him, they must prove they can see him. Although they are unable, their mistreated, scarred younger sister can - she sees his "sweet yet awesome face" all around her. He appears to her, reveals her true hidden beauty, and marries her. The book presents powerful, stylized figures and stirring landscapes contrasted by varied use of mist, shadows and darkness.
