Book Review - Grimmtastic Girls: Cinderella Stays Late
About the Book
The authors of the hit Goddess Girls series put a fun and girly twist on another super-popular theme: fairy tales!
Once upon a time, in faraway Grimmlandia...
A Grimmtastic girl named Cinderella is starting her first week at Grimm Academy on the wrong foot. Cinda's totally evil stepsisters are out to make her life miserable. The Steps tease Cinda, give her terrible advice about life at the academy, and even make her look bad in front of her new friends, Red, Snow, and Rapunzel! But when Cinda overhears the Steps plotting a villainous deed that could ruin Prince Awesome's ball, Cinda, her new friends, and a pair of magical glass slippers have to stop them--before the last stroke of midnight!
My Take on the Book
This is a great new way to experience the Cinderella fairy tale. The author has updated the tale and brought it into more relevant terms to today's youth while still maintaining the story itself. The author has also developed some great characters within this story that you will love to love and hate. What was also nice about the story was how it weaved in other characters from other fairy tales, as it showed the interconnections of all of the fairy tale characters themselves. All-in-all this was a fun book that my daughter enjoyed. By the end she was asking for another book in the series - what more can a dad ask for than that!
