Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This energetic retelling brims with robust humor and Marshall's typically wacky illustrations. Ages 4-8. (Apr.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 4-- Retold and illustrated with wit and humor, this is an excellent storytime version of the favorite fairy tale. Although lacking some of the sparkle of Marshall's Red Riding Hood (1987) and Goldilocks and the Three Bears (1988, both Dial), Karlin's language is effective and Marshall's illustrations droll: Cinderella's father marries a ``horrid woman'' because he doesn't know ``the ways of the world; ,'' and Marshall's barefoot prince lounges in a hammock hooked on a marble statue. The full-page illustrations are clear and easily seen in a group setting. Using a minimum of lines, Marshall makes every face expressive and articulate (his fat rat is hilarious). This is a strong addition to any picture book collection. With large text and generous amounts of white space, it doubles easily as transitional material as well. Solid, useful, and great fun. --Janice M. Del Negro, Chicago Public Library
