The Cinderella of this tale is a dog who is having a ruff life (ahem!). Just like the other Cindy, this one has to do all of the housework while her wicked stepsisters lay around. There is the usual glorious Prince's ball. It turns out that our Cinderella is no mutt, but instead she has a pedigree of great worth. The Prince is struck and looks all over for her dainty paws.
It's a very cute variation on the classic fairy tale, and the story is always a knockout. Very small kids will enjoy all of the dogs that are illustrated here - especially at the grand ball.
