A lively new twist on an old familiar fairy tale

Readers young and old will enjoy this fresh look at the age-old tale in which an urban-dwelling Cinder-Elly used the help of a trash can, a copy machine, and even a glass sneaker to find her Prince Charming. With a jazzily rhthmic, rhyming text and quirky, funny illustrations, this version of hte familiar favorite is irresistible.

:This ultracool version of the fairy tale . . . updates the classic with singular flair."--Publishers Weekly
