Cinderella and the Furry Slippers

Cinderella and the Furry Slippers - Davide Cali, Raphaelle Barbanegre "Cinderella and the Furry Slippers" is a modern version of the traditional tale. This poor girl, with the bad stepmother and the awful sisters, dreams with the prince she sees in the magazines. When a ball is announced, she makes a call for a godmother and asks her for a dress as she has seen in a fashion magazine…from now on nothing in this book is as we come to expect (not even the slippers!).
In the end, Cinderella runs from the disgusting prince and finds a job fair where she discovers new life perspectives. She finally feels empowered and independent, a princess of today to inspire nowadays girls.
The illustrations complement well the text: they are both great fun! This is a short tale for children who have a sense of humor and like to be surprised.
I was provided with an arc of this book by Netgalley and the publisher, so I could give an honest review.
