Product description

Meet the most fashion-conscious fairy godmother in this stylish reworking of the classic fairy tale by a new brother-and-sister creative duo. Cinderella moves into the era of flapper girls and the Charleston, in a new edition of this famous rags to riches tale. Blinded by love, Cinderella's father marries unwisely and brings home a heartless wife, her argumentative daughters and a very nasty little dog. They will stop at nothing to make life miserable for Cinderella. That is, until she triumphs in the marriage stakes. Fashion illustrator David Roberts brings all these characters to life in his meticulously researched drawings. Lynn Roberts has crafted a humorous story straight from the art deco period that perfectly complements her brother's illustration. Other titles in the series: Rapunzel and Little Red.

Author information

David Roberts was born in Liverpool. He studied fashion before moving to Hong Kong to work as a fashion illustrator. Since returning to the UK, he has illustrated numerous books, and was runner-up for the pretigious Mother Goose Award for children's illustration. His titles include the Dirty Bertie series, Tyrannosaurus Drip (with Juila Donaldson) and many titles with Philip Ardagh. David now lives and works in London where, when not drawing, he likes to make hats. Lynn Roberts has worked with children's literature for many years - both as a specialist in book shops and as a writer. Cinderella was her first picture book, and she says, "When someone bought it for the first time, I had a smile to myself. But I didn't let on...". She is also the author of Rapunzel and Little Red.
