Cinderella's evil stepmother makes her cook and clean and dust and sweep until her arms ache and her head spins. But with a tap, tap and a WHOOSH of her fairy godmother's wand, the kind, mistreated beauty becomes a shimmering vision worthy of a prince. In a wry, conversational tone, the narrative sends Cinderella off to the ball three times each time lovelier than the last breathing witty new life into this oft-told, favorite fairy tale.

Aspiring princesses will be entralled by this lively retelling of the classic rags-to-riches story, brightened by playful, quirky illustrations.
