Cinderella: A Fashionable Tale


Cinderella: A Fashionable Tale Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cinderella wants nothing more than to go to the ball, but she doesnt have a thing to wear! This classic fairy tale of the young servant girl who experiences a magical night and finally finds her prince receives a fresh and modern retelling from illustrator Steven Guarnaccia.

Guarnaccias stylized illustrations give familiar characters new life with a fun, fashion-forward look, using apparel and accessories inspired by some of the most famous fashion designers of the 20th and 21st centuries. Young readers will delight in the bright and beautiful illustrations, and fashion enthusiasts will enjoy the references to well-known haute couture designs, including a Vivienne Westwood–inspired ball gown, a rag dress of patched-together designer patterns, and Prada-inspired crystal slippers. Includes endpapers that detail the different featured designs as well as the year they were made.

Praise for Cinderella


"A crisp, modern take on the oft-told tale: deliciously subversive and visually captivating. Chic and sophisticated, a delectable homage to fashion."

--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"This title will be appreciated by children and adults who are captivated by the world of fashion and who will find inspiration for creating their own designs."

--School Library Journal
