Ralph said, "Rain tomorrow."
Burt said, "Barley needs it. You're covered with cinders, Ellis."
Ralph thought that was funny. "That's funny." He laughed. "That's what we should call him-- Cinderellis."
Burt guffawed.

In this unusual spin on an old favorite, Cinderlla is a boy! He's Cinderellis, and he has two unfriendly brothers and no fairy godmother to help him out. Luckily, he does have magical powders, and he intends to use them to win the hand of his Princess Charming-- that is, Marigold. The only problem is-- Marigold thinks Cinderellis is a monster!

Gail Carson Levine is the author of Ella Enchanted, a spirited retelling of the "real" Cinderella fairy tale and a 1998 Newberry Honor Book. In this fourth of her Princess Tales, Levine brings new life and new fun into a little-known tale and proves that determination, imagination, and kindness can carry the day.

From Our Editors

Boys also have their share of troubles - just ask Cinderellis, a singular youngster with magic powders at his disposal and three enigmatic horses as his friends. Cinderellis has a quest, which seems almost impossible despite his enchantments. His aim? To find a way to climb the glass hill and win the hand of the beautiful Princess Marigold. Cinderellis and the Glass Hill is Gail Carson Levine`s third installment in the wonderfully skewed Princess Tales series, which takes the classic ingredients of fairy tales and adds a wonderfully refreshing twist. Illustrated by Mark Elliott, this gender-bender for middle readers offers the same subtle humour and marvellous adventure as The Fairy`s Mistake.
