About the Author

ELLEN JACKSON was born and raised in southern California. As a teenager, she always wished her feet were small and delicate, and tried to cram them into shoes that were several sizes too small. Later, when she read the story of Cinderella to her kindergarten classes, she wondered how anyone could run in glass slippers, much less dance in them.

Now the author of several books for children, Ellen lives in Santa Barbara, California, where she has gladly forgotten the recipes for dozens of ways to make tuna casserole.

Kevin O'Malley has illustrated many entertaining books for children, including Too Many Kangaroo Things to Do! By Stuart J. Murphy, Cinder Edna by Ellen Jackson, and his own Carl Caught a Flying Fish.

Kevin O'Malley lives in Baltimore, Maryland.

A delighful newfangled fable for the can-do little lady. No trips to the mall or tears over bad hair days for this spunky gal...she gets a life, gets a grip and finds the man of her dreams all by being her down-to-earth self. A great find for your pre-tween!
