Dear Cinderella by Marian Moore and Mary Jane Kensington - ADVISABLE

Moore, Marian & Mary Jane Kensington Dear Cinderella illustrated by Julie Olson 32 pg. Orchard Books, 2012. PICTURE BOOK. $12.99. Beloved princesses Snow White and Cinderella exchange letters that describe the familiar details of their lives (wicked stepmothers, charming princes, magical slippers and apples etc.) but the exchange of letters puts a new spin on the details. The letters sounded a bit 21st century-ish but my 4 year old niece loved it. This was a fun and clever way to change things up from the classic princess fairy tale stories. The illustrations didn't look anything like the real Snow White and Cinderella characters which might bother some people, but they were still cute. Princess fans would enjoy this book. EL-ADVISABLE.
