Give Us A Smile Cinderella by Steve Smallman and Marcin Piwowarski (Children's, Picture book, 10E/10E, short 'n' sweet review)

 April 2015, QED, 24 pages, Paperback, Review copy

Content: lots of humour

Summary from QED
Every day Cinderella brushes her teeth twice whilst her two sisters eat cakes and sweets all day. Can her sparkling smile take her from rags to riches?

Follow Cinderella in this hilarious twist of the classic fairytale and discover why it's important to brush your teeth.

Nayu's thoughts
I adore the story of Cinderella, a classic fairytale, and this version is a brilliant take on it to get readers to take care of their teeth. I can safely say I've never read a version like this, and thoroughly enjoyed the different plot slant. The illustrations are a sweet style which made me smile on every page. Readers will understand why her step-sisters are so evil, and will be encouraged to follow Cinderella's steps, be they in one shoe or two, and brush daily so they don't frighten anyone else with the state of their teeth.

Suggested read
There are more books in this fun series such as Keep Running, Gingerbread Man! by Steve Smallman and Neil Price (Children's, Picture book, 10E/10E)
