Ashputtle's father remarries after her mother's death. He marries a rich lady with two daughters, who are rude and disrespectful, and introduces them to Ashputtle.
They made Ashputtle wear raggedy clothing and clean the fireplace all day. They mistreated her all the time.
The King and Queen were holding a ball to find their son a princess. They invited every young woman in the kingdom. Ashputtle was told not to go, by her stepmother.
Ashputtle snuck off to the ball without anyone noticing. She looked so beautiful, that no one recognized her. She and the prince danced together every night, but when clock struck, she would have to leave.
Ashputtle left her shoe at the ball, so the prince set out to find this mystery girl, knowing this was his princess. He checked every house and Ashputtle's stepsisters tried the shoe. He finally found Ashputtle and the shoe fit perfectly. He took her hand and married her.
