Grade 10 Up—In this spin-off of Bill Willingham's "Fables" series (Vertigo), Cinderella is a covert agent: her cover is a shoe store called The Glass Slipper. In her latest assignment, "Cindy" must work with handsome but infuriating Aladdin to find out who is sneaking weapons between Fableland and the outside world. Could it be Cinderella's fairy godmother? Roberson effectively integrates fairy-tale and nursery-rhyme characters into a complex, action-packed spy caper worthy of Alias or James Bond. The superhero-style illustrations are detailed and expressive. Some strong language and adult situations make this most appropriate for older teens.—Lisa Goldstein, Brooklyn Public Library, NY

Excellent use of an otherwise "empty" character. I love Fables use of Female characters who are normally very shallow, and boring. Cinderella is my favorite spinoff from Fables. Read morePublished on March 20, 2013 by A. Gutierrez
