My Review

By Lynda Dickson
What happens after a fairy tale's "happily ever after"? Well, Cinderella is now married to the Prince and their son Junior is about to celebrate his fourth birthday with a royal gala. But where is Cinderella's missing glass slipper. And who will come to her rescue?
This is author Alinka Rutkowska's first book in her new series of fairy tales with a twist. She once again teams up with Konrad Checinski, whose illustrations are bright and colorful. The cute story is followed by a quick quiz to check your child's comprehension, as well as a short version of the classic Cinderella fairy tale. The kids are sure to enjoy finding out what happens after the original story ended!
