Very Little Cinderella by Teresa Heapy and Sue Heap (Children's, Picture book, 10E/10E, short 'n' sweet review)

Cutest Cinderella ever!
 February 2015, Doubleday Children's, 32 pages, Hardback, Review copy

Just like her pal, Red Riding Hood, Very Little Cinderella is little. Very little. But she's got a very BIG personality and one way or another she usually seems to bend others to her will. Albeit very charmingly.

Join Very Little Cinderella on her very important mission: to go to the party that her Ugly Sisters are off to and to wear the outfit of her choice – however crazy it may be!

With a Big Blue Scooter, an array of fabulous frocks and a Fairy Godmother for a babysitter what could go wrong?

Nayu's thoughts
A very stubborn yet cute Cinderella tale, definitely a Cinderella I've never met before! She is utterly adorable, had my laughing so much with her phrases and her actions. She is strong minded, has stubborn as her middle name, and is sweet too. I actually felt sorry for her step-sisters at one point, which was a first for a cindrella tale (well, for the book version. The anime tv series version had me a tiny bit sorry for a moment or two). I loved the clothes which the Very Little Cinderella wears, and the way cleaning fits in her life, even though it's not actual cleaning! Definitely a fantastic alternate tale to the well loved fairytale.

Suggested read
Read another book in this cute fairytale series, Very Little Red Riding Hood (Children's, Picture book, 10E/10E)
