Cinderelephant by Emma Dodd - OPTIONAL

Dodd, Emma Cinderelephant.  Arthur Levine (Scholastic), 2012.  $17.  PICTURE BOOK.  

After Cinderelephant is left behind by her Warty cousins the night of the ball, her Furry Godmother (a mouse) uses her magic to get her ready for the night of her life and the love of Prince Trunky.  The illustrations are bright, fun and eye-catching.  The story, however, doesn’t change anything important about the original, nor make this really elephant or animal based.  Luckily the illustrations save this effort.  

EL (K-3) – OPTIONAL.  Cindy, Library Teacher.
