LoveReading View on Cinderella

The classic tale of romance and true love has been reimagined in the roaring twenties, the era of flapper girls and the Charleston with David Robert’s beautiful Art Deco illustrations throughout.  Lynn Roberts spirited retelling of the classic story of Cinderella finding her Prince Charming despite the best efforts of her wicked Step Mother and ugly spirited step sisters combined with David’s illustrations will provide plenty of interest for readers young and old.  The attention to detail to the Art Deco period is simply stunning and a delight for both its beauty and humour.  A lovely book to share.

Cinderella Synopsis

Blinded by love, Cinderella's father marries unwisely and brings home a heartless wife, and her bossy and wicked daughters, Elvira and Ermintrude. They will stop at nothing to make life miserable for Cinderella. On the day of a grand ball at the Palace, the wicked stepfamily get dressed in their finery to attend, leaving poor Cinders behind. However, Cinderella is visited by a kind fairy godmother, with exquisite fashion sense. In her beautiful beaded dress and glass slippers, Cinderella catches Prince Roderick's heart, but then on the stroke of midnight has to desert him.

Will true love find a way to bring them back together again?
