Cinderella Smith by Stephanie Barden
Cast off by her old friends, Cinderella agrees to help a new student deal with the stepsisters she will soon have, and meantime, a former friend tries to prevent Cinderella from dancing the lead in their tap recital. Illustrations.
Cinderella Smith was a cute children's book. The book is about a girl nicknamed Cinderella because she loses shoes so often. It brought back a lot of childhood memories. The book reminded me a lot of the Junie B. Jones series I used to read when I was younger. The plot was interesting. I went through some of the same things when I was a kid that Cinderella went through. I took a lot of ballet and tap dance classes as a child. Thinking on it from a younger person's perspective, I think they would really enjoy the book. I didn't care for most of Cinderella's friends. They seemed like they liked to bully her and make fun of her. Cinderella just took the bullying, and didn't do much about it. I liked Erin as a character. She always helped out Cinderella, and became a good friend to her. She never made fun of or talked bad about her. Mr Hansen and Ralph made me chuckle. The illustrations were cute. They helped to flesh out the characters in my head, made them seem more real. I recommend this book for girls ages eight and up. I also recommend this book for fans of the Junie B. Jones series.
I give Cinderella Smith : 3/5.
