Book Description

25 Sep 1997 Picture Puffin
Prince Cinders leads a very hard life. Bullied by his three hairy brothers about his less-than-perfect looks, he spends all his time cleaning and tidying up after them. One Saturday night Prince Cinders' luck changes as a small, dirty fairy falls down the chimney and promises that his wishes shall come true. Not all the fairy's spells turn out as planned in this zany twist of a traditional story.

As a teacher I have read this excellent book to children of many ages. It never fails to generate laughter and discussion.Poor Prince Cinders has to stay at home and clean up after the hairy brothers. Oh to be big and hairy too! Read it yourself to enjoy the antics of the fairy and the lovely twisty end.

5.0 out of 5 stars very funny book 23 Jun 2009
We have now got three of Babette Cole's books in our house, and we love all of them! My 6 year old daughter and 3 year old son both often choose this book as their bedtime story, and I'm not sick of reading it yet!

She is a clever author, who creates stories loosely based on fairytales, with great illustrations and good humour. Just the right length for bedtime too.

5.0 out of 5 stars CINDERELLA IS FOR BOYS TOO! 26 Dec 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got this book because we were looking at the story of Cinderella at my Nursery. Babette Cole is a fantastic author and illustrator. This is a wonderful alternative to the girl friendly Cinderella written and illustrated with great wit. The children just loved the idea of Cinders being a skinny little boy with big hairy brothers. The book was a big hit with both adults and children alike, a colleague of mine took it home to read to her son who is 7 and he loved it too! The book arried quickly and was a bargain in comparison to over the counter purchase.
A big hit all round

This is a great book, I have a son and the Cinderella story is a bit girly, I think this is a great alternative story to the traditional Cinderella especially for boys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for boys 11 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a great story to engage boys. It was good for the children to hear the story of Cinderella then hear Prince Cinders. Lots of opportunities for comparing and contrasting.
