Cute book, I enjoyed it. The kids will love recognizing the Cinderella theme. I like how the need to care for the forest was woven into the story.

This is a rendition of Cinderella. The story begins with Bigfoot prince deciding upon his bride, someone whom he hopes to be just like him. All of the Bigfoot women want to marry the Prince. Rrrrella lives with her stepmother and two stepsisters. Rrrrella is bossed around by her stepsisters and stepmother, doing the chores and fishing. When the annual fun fest arrives Rrrrella is left to work and do all of the chores. Rrrrella's beary godfather appears and magically gets her ready for the fest. Rrrrella wins the Prince's heart when she knocks him of the log, but the she quickly disappears. The Prince hunts her down by having every female try on the clog that the mystery woman left behind. This is a fun tale with a happy ending. This book would be excellent for a unit on folktales and students creating their own folktales.

This book puts the reader through a series of regular events from a different persective than usual. This story is the original cinderella story, but the characters are bigfoots. The plot is identical, except instead of a ball these bigfoots have a place where they have to try to throw the prince off the log to win him over. This book is full of great illstrations and as a reader you come to really fall in love with the characters.As I read this book i really connected to the characters, because they are trying to find how they are going to end up in their final lives.A great classroom extension would be to read the orignel cinderella or watch the movie and have your students compare the two. Another one would be to have the students write a different fairy tale that they are fimilar with from the bigfoot perspective.
