The Lovereading4Kids comment

No matter how many times it is told, or how many twists it is given, Cinderella remains one of the best and most satisfying stories ever. Ed Bryan does it full justice in this lovely version (also produced by Nosy Crow as a prize-winning app), which is ideal for the very young. Bryan’s illustrations are bright and expressive and very appealing - Cinderella is sweet and lovely, and the ugly sisters mean rather than really cruel. The prince enjoys table tennis! As an added bonus, there’s a QR code at the front of the book: scan to hear a free audio reading of the book. ~ Andrea Reece

Ruth from Nosy Crow says: This favourite fairy tale is brought to life by Ed’s vibrant artwork, which is packed with detail and humour. You’ve probably read Cinderella before, but you’re missing out until you’ve seen the fairy godmother use her knitting needles as a magic wand and Cinderella disco-dancing at the ball. This lively retelling will get the whole family giggling, and fans of the app are sure to love this beautiful book. Get the app here!


Cinderella by Ed Bryan

Cinderella works hard to clean the house and look after her nasty stepsisters, but when the rest of the family go to a Royal Ball, Cinderella is left behind. That's when the fairy godmother arrives and works her magic - Cinderella will go to the ball after all! Cinderella and the prince dance all night until midnight strikes, the magic stops working and Cinderella has to make a quick exit ...Will the prince ever find her again?

All Nosy Crow Stories Aloud picture books have a QR code. Just scan it and you and your children can enjoy free audio recordings of the book. You will find the QR code on the inside front cover.

About the Author

Ever since his art teacher told Ed's parents that their son blossomed in the art room, Ed has followed an artistic path, studying industrial design and working as a 3D artist, animator, and illustrator on video games such as Viva Pinata. He likes nothing better than making up stuff and colouring it in. Ed grew up in Suffolk, in a house full of home computers and pencils.
