    This is a beautiful rendition of Cinderella in the pop-up style. The art work is amazing, and the pop-up style (paper engineering) is so cleverly done. Pop-up books have always been a favorite of mine. I love the interaction and the 3D effect. And, of course, I love the story. Very well done! Enjoyed immensely!!

Folktale CATEGORIES/GENRES FOR THIS CLASS FULFILLED BY THIS BOOK: Folktale/Fairytale ESTIMATE OF GRADE LEVEL INTEREST: 3-6 ESTIMATE OF READING LEVEL: 7.3 BRIEF DESCRIPTION: Cinderella, a poorly treated girl, magically meets a prince at a ball who is searching for a bride. IDENTIFY AT LEAST 2 CHARACTERISTICS OF THIS GENRE AND SUBGENRE AND DISCUSS HOW THEY APPEAR IN YOUR BOOK: Folktales often end happily, and in this case, Cinderella ends up marrying and living happily ever after in a flashy purple castle. Folktales also often have elements where poetic justice prevails, and in this case, the characters who are mean to Cinderella end up not being liked by the prince, and the prince takes Cinderella as his bride instead. IN WHAT WAYS AND HOW WELL DOES THE BOOK AS A WHOLE SERVE ITS INTENDED AUDIENCE?: The pop-up illustrations represent a more modern Cinderella because the bright watercolors give it more of a feeling of the modern day, rather than a tired tale that has been retold throughout the ages. Students in grades 3-6 might be attracted to this updated look where flashy metallic details and sparkles and bright swirly pastels grace nearly every page. The action in the classic story is even more enhanced by the ingenious pop-ups where just by turning a page, for example, a see-through plastic shoe, meant to be the real glass slipper Cinderella wore to the ball, is fitted on her foot as the page is turned by the reader. The ballroom scene comes to life when cut-outs of couples dancing twirl when the full spread page opens. The only disappointment may be the lack of interactive or manual tabs to pull to make the story come to life, as almost all of the pop-up illustrations just need to have the page turned in order for the illustrations and 3D effects to appear.

    Beautifully done paper-engineering. My favorite is the pumpkin/carriage, but the whole book is a visual treat!

    This book tells the classic Cinderella story, but adds such excitement with the fabulous pop-up pictures. My favorite one was with the horse and carriage, and I think this book really brings the story to life.
