About this title

Synopsis:

Offers an amusing twist to the classic tale as one deprived pup becomes the star of the ball after having her wish come true by her fairy godmother. By the illustrator of The Dinosaur's New Clothes.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 4-Goode, who cast dinosaurs in Hans Christian Andersen's "The Emperor's New Clothes," now makes dogs the actors in this version of "Cinderella." Though she does not acknowledge her source, her shortened, colloquial retelling follows Marcia Brown's free translation of Charles Perrault's story (Scribner, 1971). Dogs dressed as 18th-century French courtiers provide boundless opportunities for verbal and visual jokes. For example, the bodice of one stepsister's ball gown fastens with bones, while bones decorate her extravagant wig. She mocks Cinderella by saying, "Everyone would laugh to see such a dirty dog at the ball." The scenes of the gala feature a wild assortment of breeds, as well as an elegant wolf couple. The prince, looking adoring as only a canine can, is half Cinderella's height, not counting her wig. Goode dresses the animals in pretty pastel colors and displays them against buff stone architecture, carved with dogs in bas-relief. Librarians who enjoy the humor of dressed-up animals as human surrogates may relish the silliness and informality of this story, an irreverent contrast to the standard version. Traditionalists may find it all a bit arch and tedious, and will prefer Brown's classic for storyhour. Collection builders may want to add it to meet demands for comparative retellings of the famous tale.
