    Great for kids

    My students loved this book. We are comparing Cinderella stories and this one is the kid's favorite so far. They are even reading it when regular work is done.

    Cinderella Skeleton... Halloween Treat!

    I'm currently watching "The Corpse Bride", and there was a scene, on a balcony, where the Corpse Bride commented on the view, and, suddenly, my mind's flying back a few years to a memory. I was sitting in my elementary school's library, and I was reading none other than "Cinderella Skeleton"! I immediately jumped onto B&N to check it out! I'm eager to buy it!

    I remember loving it when I was younger, and, as Halloween is one of the best days of the year (heck, it's Halloween season right now!), the book is ideal! It's a thrill, and a fabulously spooky twist on the classic story. Read it. Fear it. Love it!

    Cinderella Skeleton....Foulest in the land was she.

    I have always been a fan of 'dark humor'. Being a Goth myself my taste is somewhat darker than most. And I must say... I adore this book! It is a poetic, macabre twist of the classic Cinderella story we all know and love. I have a little sister who's there's quite an age difference. About a week ago I got this book from the library and I've read it every night to her. (She's made me) It has the the right amount of dark and the perfect amount of enough light to be an ALL AGES book. Oh, and the pictures are wonderfully ghastly as well. They have so much detail. David Catrow seems how to know how to draw the spookish beauty Cinderella so well, that even her being a skeleton and all... my sister stil finds her beautiful. The point is... read the book. You won't regret it ^^

    Instant Classic

    I have to say,this book is absolutely an adorable adaptation of the classic we've all come to love so well.After all skeletons need a fairy tale as well as the living.I think the Cinderella in this particular version is absolutely enchanting.I think for the most part when we read,see,and hear of skeletons,right away we think evil,death,halloween.Its nice to read a charming fairy tale once in awhile with the most unthought of of characters.I think the author should start on his next story like sleeping beauty skeleton,or Snow white skeleton and create a line of skeleton fairy tales like cinderella skeleton.I especially like the last page where the prince and cinderella are happy at last floating in the air.My opinion is it deserves ten stars...

    Lovely! A charming twist to a classic fairy tale!

    As a Children's Librarian, I thought this book was adorable! Kids love spooky stories, especially around Halloween, and this book is a perfect merging of a classic fairy tale and a spooky setting. It's truly orginial, refreshing and highly entertaining! The rhyming text is brilliant and well-thought out, and the illustrations are breathtaking. Kids will really enjoy this one, and adults will enjoy reading it to them! A perfect addition to any Halloween picture book collection!

    Not for children

    This book is appalling!! I would never purchase this book! I teach Kindergarten and I would never give them this book to read. To think that someone would take an innocent fairy tale and turn it into a nightmare is disgusting!

    A Real Page Turner!

    This book was really funny. Quite a different twist than the classic Cinderella stories. The descriptions in this book make everything very easy and fun to visualize.
