This modern re-telling of the classic fairy tale, Cinderella tells the story of how a dreamy prince captures Cinderella’s heart on the dance floor. But, her clothes are rags, her stepsisters make fun of her and her horrid stepmother makes her work so hard. Luckily her no-nonsense fairy godmother appears with a magic wand and a plan of action. The kids will beg you to tell them if Cinderella’s dreams will come true.

By Leigh Hodgkinson
Published by Nosy Crow, R119

We all know that when Goldilocks made a bit of a mess of The Three Bears’ house, they were glad to see her leave. But did you ever wonder what happened afterwards?
Little Bear wanders out of his forest and gets lost in the big city where Goldilocks now lives, all grown-up with her own family. What will Goldilocks do when she comes home to find someone has eaten her porridge, broken chairs, and a bear sleeping in her bed? If your little one loved the original Goldilocks and the Three Bears, she’s in for a treat with this story.
