Julia Eccleshare's comment:
Interest Age 9+ Reading Age 8+. A romping comedy of catastrophes, this version of the Cinderella story comes straight from the mouths of the step sisters. They make no apology for their terrible behaviour as they greedily pursue their own ends while doing down their step sister. But, as everyone knows, Cinderella has the last laugh.
Without exception dyslexia-friendly books published by Barrington Stoke get off to an exciting start and maintain the impetus throughout, with a cliffhanger at the end of every chapter. The plot is clear, the characters appealing and there are plenty of visual clues, as dyslexics like to run a story like a video in their heads.

SynopsisThe Stepsisters' Story by Kaye Umansky

About The Author
Kaye Umansky is a very successful writer for children, with her books ranging from picture books to novels. Her first novel, Pongwiffy, shot straight onto the bestseller list on publication. She is also the author of the Solomon Snow books. Clover Twig and the Incredible Flying Cottage, published by Bloomsbury in April 2008, is fantastically funny, hugely pacy and full of wonky magic, clutzy characters and lots of energy.
Her bestselling picture books include Tickle My Nose, illustrated by Nick Sharratt.
To celebrate 21 years of the hugely popular Pongwiffy, Bloomsbury are publishing the newly repackaged, newly reillustrated and fantastically funny Pongwiffy series, as well as a brand new title Pongwiffy, Back on Track.
Kay has been chosen to provide a new story to be included in one of the "World Book Day" children's books to be published next spring 2013.
Awards Kay has collected
Nottinghamshire Book Award 1993 for Pongwiffy and The Spell of The Year
TES Junior Music Book Award 1999 for Three Rapping Rats
