Krista-link-a-la is a precocious 8 year old immigrant girl from Eastern Europe. Her family settles in a remote rural town in Northern Ontario, to make a better life for themselves. Surrounding herself with friends from the street she lives on, she finds a clever way to build a bridge for herself between the old world she was born into, and the new world she must make her way in.
She writes a play ! A clever , heart warming homage to the classic Cinderella tale- she takes advantage of what could be thought of as a challenge ( big feet for a little girl) and turns the tables - by casting herself as Cinderella with her glass slipper size 13 red running shoe, belonging to her older brother.

About the Author
Growing up from sturdy Slovak and Ukrainian stock, gave her extremely large feet for a child. This genetic trait was passed on to the first grandaughter Katya ( Kayte) whose size 12 shoes are the inspiration behind writing this book.
A short play she wrote for the neighborhood children when she was eight " Rindicella and the size 13 shoes" was the basis of this kids book.
The little play turned into a lifelong career. Tina is an award winning Actor, Director and Producer, currently living in Toronto Canada.
