Overview

I know, I know. You’ve heard the story a million times before. Mean stepmother. Lots of sweeping. Fancy ball. You remember. Or do you? Did you remember that Cinderella was such a nice girl—so smart and funny? You probably would’ve liked her. Did you know that “Cinderella” was just a nickname? And that her handsome prince loved Jell-o and was a wonderful dancer?

Readers will delight in following Cinderella through all the usual happenings, presented in a most unusual way. And they’ll finally see what becomes of her after she marries the prince. So maybe you should hear the story one last time. Because it’s actually way different than you might have thought. . . .

Kids who have outgrown picture books and are ready for something longer—but still love illustrated texts—will gravitate toward this Cinderella, which was an IRA-CBC Children's Choice selection. Black-and-white silhouettes of everything from the ugly stepsisters to Cinderella’s slipper (actual size) are intermingled with Cinderella’s letters to her recently deceased mother in this totally original package. And don't miss the companion book to this fairy-tale reboot: Thumbelina, Tiny Runaway Bride.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Young
What to read when you want something a little more advanced than a picture book but still need a familiar story? Ensor's new foray into children's literature may fit the bill. Told through the eyes of a young preteen girl and interspersed with letters from Cinderella to her recently deceased mother, this novel is an absolute delight and will capture the attention of the girls and women who read it. Yes, mothers, aunts, grandmothers, and probably fuddy-duddy spinsters will enjoy this with equal delectation. The illustrations might appear a bit amateurish, not quite scherenschnitte, not silly or immature, but very appropriate for the text. More than just a fairy tale, this continues the story past the wedding, which may surprise some, but be a comfort to others. One thing remains true to the fairy tale—Cinderella is loved just the way she is, even when she makes mistakes. That alone is an important message for all. A perfect choice for a book club, after school reading program, or just for an individual escape. The rest of the Cinderella is a delicious addition to any library.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-This lightweight retelling of the classic fairy tale will please girls who like undemanding and familiar stories with a twist. In this version, Cinderella writes letters to her dead mama complaining about her evil stepmother and attractive but mean-spirited older stepsisters. She spends her days cleaning, cooking, sewing, and generally feeling miserable and put-upon even though she tries to be nice and accommodating. Readers know how it all ends, and Ensor recounts it dutifully, but adds what happens after the curtain traditionally falls on the story. The two work hard on their marriage, since they barely know one another, and eventually the prince becomes a king and a singer while Cinderella finds the other side of herself-as a talented diplomat fully capable of improving their country and the world all around them. Black-and-white silhouettes are positioned throughout the text but don't add much to the story.-Susan Riley, Mount Kisco Public Library, NY Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    Fun Read!

    I read this book in one day, I couldn't put it down. It starts out like the traditional Cinderella with the girl losing her mother and the wicked stepmother and stepsisters. Then the story has some unexpected twists. It was awesome. Enjoy!

    Cinderella dressed in yella went upstairs to kiss her fella...

    We all know the story. Rags to riches. Girl meets boy. At ball. Girls has to leave at midnight. clock ticks. Girls runs off, leaves behind slipper. Boy finds slipper. He tries to find the girl by this having all the eligible young girls in his kingdom try on the slipper. Girl fits the slipper. Happily ever after. The end...or not?

    so what if we know the story? Was that REALLY what happened? Barbara ensor gives us an inside scoop on another side to this classic tale...and the results are charming, enchating, and just plain cute!

    The illustrations, which are actually "shadows" cut from paper, or silouttes, add to the story and then some. They fit, they work, and are beautiful to look at and study. The cover is girly, but may dis-attract older readers, so beware! This book is truly one for all ages. Some girls just may read it faster than others. but that doesn't subtract from it's charm.

    I read this in an afternoon and enjoyed myself highly. It's one of those books that you don't have to think about or get too deep into. Not mindless entertainment mind you! Just plain fun. this is not William Shakespeare or Jane Austen. But that doesn't mean it still couldn't be a classic. After all, it's a class story, that millions of people all around the country, and world, have obsessed over for centuries. It never grows old, becuase it weaves a story of hope, of rags to riches, and that's what makes it THE fairytale of all time.

    As for content, you can't go wrong her. This short novel is about as clean as Disney Channel Tv show. Which is about as clean as you can get these days.

    Read this, share this, and spend a sunny afternoon giggling and being girly over it's pages. It's pure fun, and not fluff. Who knew?

    Okay...

    This book was okay but it was so easy to read it only took me about half an hour to finish. It had a good story and all, but what I didn't like was that it didn't really describe her shoes, they didn't even say they were glass slippers, so that part was kind of pointless. Another thing is when the stepmom and stepsisters are bossing Cinderella around, where is the dad, is he dead? At work? At a party? A little more description please. Anyways, the book was worth 3/5.

    The Best Book in the World!

    Really! This book expresses so many different feelings at the same time. You know what Cinderella's feelings are no matter what. When I got this book, it was like I was holding a piece of gold in my hands.When I finished the book I felt so sad that all the story was already gone. - Helena, 8 years
