Back of Book:
OF COURSE you think Cinderella was the sweetest belle of the ball. You don’t know the other side of the story. Well, let me tell you…
The Story of Cinderella as told by the Wicked Stepmother.
My Review:
I love using fractured fairytales to show readers a different perspective of different stories. Seriously Cinderella is So Annoying is a perfect comparison to add to any Cinderella unit. The story is told from the wicked stepmother’s point of view and spins a different view for readers. The text is hysterical and keeps readers laughing the entire time.
The illustrations by Gerald Guerlais are bright and bring the story to life. The details on the animals are engaging and colorful.
The back of the book has discussion questions that are perfect for compare and contrast conversations. Trisha wrote these stories with teachers in mind. She added a glossary, further reading, and internet sites for extra research. I am planning on getting this entire collection to share in my classroom. A perfect addition to any lesson on different points of view.
