Product Description

Amazon Review

Cinderella's Bum by Nicholas Allan is a "cheeky" celebration of the differences between people's bodies that will definitely strike a chord with anyone who's ever uttered the immortal line: "Does my bum look big in this?".

A little girl watches her older sister agonise about the size of her bottom when trying to squeeze into her swimsuit. She points out to her sister that people come in all shapes and sizes and that big bottoms can actually be quite useful. She goes on to demonstrate this by using famous people as examples--Santa Claus needs a big bottom for when he has to make unexpected crash landings in his sleigh, and Queen Victoria would have been lost without hers, being on the throne for so long. Of course, there are some instances where having a big bottom would be an occupational hazard—Houdini's career as an escapologist would have been cut short for certain! We learn that famous fairy tales would have been very different if they'd venerated the bottom as opposed to other parts of the body: "Cinderella had small feet but a big bum … so it's lucky Cinderella lost her shoe at the ball at not her knickers."

Cinderella's Bum is irreverent yet warm, complemented by Allan's lively watercolour illustrations. Suitable for ages five upwards.--Alison Drury --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Afraid that neither my son or I particularly enjoyed this one. For my son (4), the jokes about historical bums went above his head, and I didn't find it easy to read.

A girl's big sister is worried about her 'big bum' in a swimming suit, so her sister makes her feel better by talking about famous bums (Cinderella's, Queen Victoria's). I felt a little uncomfortable with the idea - introducing the concept that you should be concerned with the size of your posterior isn't a great idea for young children. That may be taking it a little seriously, but certain impressionable readers may question it.

It's very funny in its design and concept, but it's not for very young children, Allan often works best for school-age (or adult!) kids.

I love this author, my children love this author. Every book we have read has evoked laughter, discussion and the dreaded: 'again, again'.

It is almost as if the author is able to don the head of a child when he writes, he just instinctively understands a child's sense of humour.

Bought for our great grandson aged 3.5, but i will wait a while as it is really so subtle, and better understood by adults i think.
Another super book by Nicholas. Jesus' Christmas Party started me off, much read and given away (sold dozens when i was running Stroud's Christian bookshop in the 90's. Love The Queen's Knickers, and Father Christmas needs a wee!!!!!

The children in my class have loved the previous Nicolas Allan books (The Queens Knickers and Father Christmas needs a wee) I decided to buy The Giants Loo Roll and Cinderella's Bum. They were both enjoyed as much as the other two and has us all giggling along with the story. Would definitely recommend!!

A reprint of this title is sure to be enjoyed by a new audience of young children as they romp through a series of historical bottoms large and small. Each accompanied by bright colourful illustrations. The moral of the story is be happy and satisfied with what you have, it could be worse and may not be as bad as you think
