Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

andlt;iandgt;If the Shoe Fits: Voices from Cinderellaandlt;/iandgt; takes a fresh look at an old and favorite story. In thirty-three poems it brings to life not only the voices of well-loved characters, but also voices of characters not usually heard from — including the glass slipper, without which the story would not have a happy ending. On the stage set by the story we hear each player tell the tale from their point of view, answering the questions that swirl around Cinderella: andlt;BRandgt; Is the ghost of Cinderella's father at peace in the afterlife? What has made Cinderella's stepmother so cruel? Can a rat be as happy as a human? How do the prince's mother and father feel about Cinderella for their son? Does the Magic One's Magic last forever? Do the glass slippers realize how important a role they play in the life of one girl? Is there a quiet someone, with a gentle purr, who is a secret accomplice? And, finally, what does Cinderella herself have to say to us about her own story? andlt;BRandgt; Through the rhythms of Laura Whipple's poetry and the sweeping colors of Laura Beingessner's artwork, Cinderella's story is spun anew for audiences of all ages to celebrate.

Synopsis:

Through the rhythms of Whipple's poetry and the sweeping colors and scenes of Beingessner's artwork, Cinderella's magical story is spun anew for audiences of all ages. Full color.
