In this inventive take on the traditional Cinderella tale, Fanny Agnes is a sturdy farm girl with a big dream. Someday, she believes, she will marry a prince. When the town mayor announces he is throwing a grand ball, Fanny is convinced her time has come. She puts on her best calico dress and goes out to the garden so that she'll be ready when her fairy godmother arrives. As the seconds tick by, Fanny waits and waits. Finally, she hears a voice. It isn't her fairy godmother-but it is someone who will change her life forever.
The husband-and-wife team behind the best-selling Snowmen at Night and Snowmen at Christmas, Carolyn and Mark Buehner are also the creators of the award-winning Fanny’s Dream. Upcoming collaborations include an original fairy tale about a lonely princess who decides to become a hairdresser. They live in Utah with their nine children....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful A moving story that reworks Cinderella into a much better moral, and really makes you think. I had a really interesting discussion during and after the story with my students, and the book stuck with me for days afterwards. And now I'm going to buy it!
