Reviews

Underwood gives thisCinderella welcome agency and independence. --Publishers Weekly, starred review A brilliant twist to the classic fairy tale that enables young readers to meet a brave heroine who can creatively solve problems, work with tools, and be herself. --Geek Dad A futuristic version of the Cinderella story starring a determined and independent-minded protagonist. Highly recommended. --A Mighty Girl Does Cinderella really need another re-telling? Heck yes! --Design Mom An interesting take on a classic fairy tale. -School Library Journal This retelling focuses on what Cinderella can do, not what she can wear. --Horn Book Magazine It's the perfect antidote to fantasies of princely rescue. --Chicago Tribune A familiar folktale, but this time with a new, feminist, STEM-celebrating vocabulary and in witty rhyming text.'--Lilith Magazine
