If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.

Normal-length Picture Book
Genre: Fiction

With a main character named Cinders and three lazy step-siblings, I am sure you can guess what will happen in this story! Yup, it's another version of Cinderella, but it is one I am sure you will enjoy reading. It is clever in how it tells the familiar story. I also enjoyed that it had boys and men as the main characters, which you don't often see in these kinds of stories. I liked the chunky watercolor illustrations. This book definitely made me smile more than once!
