Now that my cousins have daughters I'm always on the lookout for books that challenge the norms of girls and princesses an being pretty, pink, and marrying a prince. This is an excellent example of what I look for, even though she does marry a prince. I just can't say enough good things about this book, it's funny, smart, and wonderfully made. The story is fantastic, the artwork is amusing and well done. When ever I run across a girl in need of a book, this will be in the top 2 stories I hand her.

I LOVED this book. Classical fairy tales are cute, but sometimes they seem to be one demensional. This is not the case with Cinder Edna, Cinderella's neighbor who has the same problems the poor princess does, but approaches them by taking care of them herself. There is a happy ending and happily ever after, but no one helps Cinder Edna get there...she does it all on her own.

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed this tale. It proved that everyone can live the fairy tale. In real life you need to put a little effort in to achieve your dream. Sometimes the dream comes when you're not even looking for it.

My 5 year old daughter and I love this book! The author did a great job showing how life is what you make of it! I also liked how the story depicted common interests and values over perfect beauty!

I like this Cinderella book because it's very funny and it's like the real Cinderella story. It was very cool and has great pictures.

I thoroughly enjoyed Cinder Edna! It was great to read about someone who see's the glass half full instead of half empty. My sisters and I all loved it. It was more realistic to how life really happens than is Cinderella.
