Cinderella by Ed Bryan - ADVISABLE

Bryan, Ed  Cinderella  Nosy Crow, 2016 (Candlewick).  $9.99  PICTURE BOOK  Content: G.   

This is the classic telling of Cinderella.  Cinderella is a slave for her stepmother and stepsisters, but after being temporarily magically transformed by her fairy godmother Cinderella goes to the royal ball.  While at the ball, the prince falls in love with Cinderella, and after they are separated the prince finds her and marries her.  

I like that this picture book sticks to the classical version of Cinderella.  The text is 3-4 sentences per page spread and simple.  The illustrations are adorable with bright colors and cute characters.  If you need a new face for an old story, this is a great pick.  

 EL (K-3) – ADVISABLE.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
