Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fractured Fairy Tale Success What an interesting take on the tale of Cinderella. She is a mechanic and in no hurry to get married at her age. Beautifully illustrated and fun rhyming text make it an ideal read aloud.

Editorial Reviews

A brilliant twist to the classic fairy tale that enables young readers to meet a brave heroine who can creatively solve problems, work with tools, and be herself." - Geek Dad"Underwood gives thisCinderella welcome agency and independence." - Publishers Weekly, starred review"This retelling focuses on what Cinderella can do, not what she can wear." - Horn Book Magazine"It's the perfect antidote to fantasies of princely rescue." - Chicago Tribune"Does Cinderella really need another re-telling? Heck yes!" - Design Mom"An interesting take on a classic fairy tale."-School Library Journal"A futuristic version of the Cinderella story starring a determined and independent-minded protagonist. Highly recommended." - A Mighty Girl"A familiar folktale, but this time with a new, feminist, STEM-celebrating vocabulary and in witty rhyming text.' - Lilith Magazine"
