Cinderella the Fairytale Files book review

Cinderella the Fairytale Files by Alan Durant
Reviewed by Emma

This is a book about a girl who had a terrible family.  Her sisters and step-mum are mean to her.  They keep her locked up in a room and make her do all the cleaning. One day the older sisters get a letter saying they were invited to the royal ball.  Will Cinderella make it to the ball or not? 

This is a bit different to the original Cinderella story because she gets heaps of letters from people asking her about her life but she can't send any letters back.

This is a fun book. I think people will love it especially ages 5-10. I think people will like it because it has got lots of letters inside you can pull out and read, like shopping lists and also letters from Rumplestilskin. My favourite character is the step mother because she has got every one thinking she is so nice but in reality she is the worst mother you could have as she cuts Cinderella's hair and tortures her.

4 out of 5

  1. I haven't read this story but I saw the book while you were writing the review. It looks as though it would be fun because of the letters you can take out and read.
    Have you read The True Story of the Three Little Pigs? That's another fairytale that has been changed to make a funny and different version of the story.
