Picture Book Review: Cinderella and the Furry Slippers

Handsome princes, fancy castles, extravagant balls . . . in this girl-power fractured fairy tale, Cinderella learns that if it looks too good to be true, it probably is, and it's better to create your own happy ending.

Cinderella is dying to go to the ball. She's seen pictures of the fancy castle and the handsome prince, she's heard the fairy tales about true love, she's found the perfect dress in Princess magazine and she's even found an ad for a Fairy Godmother. She's all set. 

Except the fairy godmother doesn't look like the one in the ad. And the castle doesn't look like the picture. And the prince . . . well, Cinderella decides her fairy-tale ending is going to look different--and be a whole lot more fun.




5 Stars
This is a funny version of the original Cinderella story set to modern day thinking. Just because she's stuck in a dead-end job doesn't mean she needs to pin all her hopes on landing a prince. The illustrations reflect artwork from current cartoons and would be appealing to a young reader. I especially liked the ending of this one. You go girl!
