If the Shoe Fits: Voices from Cinderella

Illustrated by: Laura Beingessner
Age Level: Middle Grade (9-14)
This book 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.
