Book Review - Cinderellaphant
About the Book
This beloved fairy tale comes with a bigger glass slipper! This punny twist on the beloved fairytale will delight readers of all ages. Children will enjoy finding similarities between Cinderella and her pachyderm equivalent as she searches for love at the ball of the zebra prince, heir to the throne. With a plethora of funny fur and hooves from across the animal kingdom, including an adorable fairy god-mouse, the lighthearted illustrations serve to highlight the imagination of this fractured fairytale.
My Take on the Book
Dianne de Las Casas took the timeless fairy tale Cinderella and gave it a twist. The main character in this version is an elephant and the step mother and step sisters are hippos. The prince is a zebra. The fairy godmother is a godmouse.
The story line will be familiar although our author has put in some of her own touches which add humor to the story . You and your child will laugh through the story and definitely enjoy this version.
