The Story
Cinderella Smith—Book Review

Cinderella Smith got her name because she is always losing her shoes, and she's gone and done it again. But this time it's her brand new tap shoe, and if she doesn't have it, she can't possibly be the Pumpkin Blossom Fairy in the dance recital. She needs to find that shoe, and find it fast. In the meantime though, she is thrilled that the new girl at school, Erin, has reached out to her (and NOT Rosemary), but it's because she wants advice about wicked stepsisters. Alas, maybe Erin doesn't realize that Cinderella doesn't have any stepsisters, wicked or otherwise. Will she still want to be friends if Cinderella can't help her out?
The Scoop
Cinderella Smith—Book Review
{spoiler alert}

This fun read will appeal to elementary-aged girls who are just into chapter books and looking for a story about friends and school. Cinderella is a charming character who has a positive attitude and an approach to solving problems that is just a little bit different. She has to contend with pushy, bossy girls who kick Cinderella out of their lunch table to make room for the new girl. Together, she and her new friend are able to rise above the mean behavior without resorting to spiteful antics in return. Every young reader can probably relate to having to deal with someone who behaves poorly when they don't get their way, and Cinderella sets a nice example of how to do that politely.
