Very Little Cinderella, with her lello boots and BIG blue scooter is truly adorable. I love the concept of twisted fairy tales - children know all the traditional tales so well and the variations bring new life to them, making them appealing and contemporary. Very Little Cinderella speaks to us in a child's voice with a child's speech and young ones will really respond to this; it's cleverly and wittily done. A super contemporary take on the old favourite with plenty of humour. Parents in Touch A quirky twist on the traditional tale will have children everywhere laughing themselves to sleep. -- Rebecca Hay Very Little Cinderella is a well thought out and excellently illustrated book worth having -- Philomena Manson Children's Books Ireland This is a cosy story, ideal for reading at bedtime Books for Keeps
