Okay, okay, "vexylent" isn't a real word! Cinderella Smith made it up as a combination of "very" and "excellent." But Cinderella and Erin are hard at work learning to spell real words, because whoever wins first place in the spelling bee gets to pick the theme of the class party!

Speaking of words, Rosemary T. has been using some pretty mean ones lately. So Cinderella decides to give her the silent treatment. But Cinderella's aunt Flora tells her that it's time to have a "what's what" with Rosemary.

Will Cinderella be able to say, and spell, everything she needs?

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2–4—Third-grader Cinderella Smith is experiencing growing pains. Rosemary T., who has been her neighbor forever, informs her that things like skipping, holding hands, and making up combination words are "immature." When Aunt Flora comes to stay with Cinderella and her sister while their parents are away, Rosemary T. decides that Aunt Flora is weird and may just be a witch. Cinderella and her friend Erin decide that the best way to deal with Rosemary T. is the silent treatment, but Aunt Flora helps the girls figure out that communication might just be the answer. The plucky heroine is right at home beside Judy Moody, Clementine, and Ramona. Quirky, but not over-the-top, her experiences are true to life and she remains comfortable in her own skin. Cinderella is an ally to the kids in her class, and might inspire some readers to speak up themselves.—Stacy Dillon, LREI, New York City
