Abadeha: The Philippine Cinderella is a story that had already disappeared from mainstream Philippine folk literature, and de la Paz made it her mission to rescue this tale with its indigenous roots intact. What sets Abadeha apart are the details. At one point the Spirit gives Abadeha a sarimonok, a brilliantly colored chicken with long, flowing tail feathers. However, when Abadeha takes the bird home, her stepmother kills and roasts it for dinner. The son of the island chieftain discovers the tree while hunting and takes a ring from it.

Students could read this book and make notes about questions they have that can later be researched. I thought this was a WOW book because it really is so rich in culture and I love how at the end of the story the girl is the one who has to "save" the prince, not the other way around.
