"This is the series I've been looking for."
CinderSilly is the ‘anti Cinderella,’ perhaps the most important twisted fairytale ever. This Cinderella is NEVER A VICTIM! She overcomes the bullying of her stepmother, teasing from stepsisters, hard chores, and doesn’t need to be a princess in order to live HAPPIER EVER AFTER. CinderSilly doesn’t rely on magic to gain control of her circumstances. She is a pro-active girl with a positive attitude, who proves that ‘life is what you make it.’
"Good for all kinds of kids, but especially those in love with the idea of princesses!
Both my daughters have gone through a stage when they adore princesses (thanks, Disney). I love this book as a counter balance to the romance and happily ever after themes we normally see in other princess stories. Cindersilly uses her wits, creativity, and a sense of humor to face her troubles. I like the positive message of the book, the lovely illustrations, and the interwoven song."
