Seriously, Cinderella Is So Annoying!

Seriously, Cinderella Is So Annoying!
by Trisha Speed Shaskan
Illustrated by Gerald Guerlais

Genre: Picture Book, Fractured Fairy Tale

Synopsis:  Of course you think Cinderella was the sweetest belle of the ball.  You don't know the other side of the story.  Well, let me tell you...
From the back of the book

Review:  This was Cinderella told from the point of view of the Stepmother.  Of course, she is not wicked in this story. instead Cinderella is an annoying girl who tells stories and talks to animals all the time.  The wicked stepmother had to put her to work (as well as her other daughters) to clean the house.  I think this book is intended to be used in a classroom to talk about point of view.  There are 3 more books written by this author in the same format.  While this book wasn't bad, it just wasn't as good as most other picture books I've read.  My kids were still engaged in the story though.

Rating: 3 stars
