Prince Trunky is on the lookout for a bride and the whole kingdom is invited to a ball. The Warty Sisters are determined to keep Cinderella at home and snag the handsome bachelor for themselves, but the Furry Godmouse has other ideas. The moment Cinderelephant trips into his arms, Prince Trunky knows that she is his one true love, but can he track down the lady who fits her dainty (well - almost dainty) slipper? Emma Dodd is on rip-roaring form with this hilarious take on a well-loved fairy tale.
The 411 by Maria:
My kids and I sat down to read this together because I really thought 10 year old Handsome would find it funny as well. Most boys are not into princess stories but this one had mean and smelly wart sisters so I thought, why not?!
The photos show a very large, female elephant who like Cinderella is not allowed to go to the ball with her sisters. Her fairy Godmouse turns her into a princess and she does go. The bored prince is very happy to see her until she has to rush out because the magic only lasts a few hours. Upon leaving she looses a very large shoe and the prince searches for her by finding someone who fits the shoe.
The Cinderella story stays intact but is very cute with a large elephant as our main focus.
Adorable story that I cannot wait to read to my daughter's class.
