Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Cinderella’s third adventure finds her researching ocelots for an endangered species report—hampered by the fact that someone has taken every book she needs from the school library. Mean girls Rosemary T. and Rosemary W. are the prime suspects, but Cinderella (generous and good as her namesake) finds a workaround using the public library. Series fans will chuckle at this third-grader’s constant search for her missing footwear, empathize as she deals with friends and enemies, and applaud when Charlie (Prince) offers Cinderella his basketball shoe for the walk home. Illustrated with Goode’s humorous cartoons. Grades 2-4. --Kay Weisman

Review

“Cinderella continues to charm with her positive ways of making peace in her third-grade classroom.” (Seattle Times)

Fans of this series will appreciate the subtle changes that happen in these sunny stories. The boys and girls are growing up and noticing each other in different ways-they solve problems and forgive each other. Goode’s black-and-white illustrations add humor and emotion to the story. (Kirkus Reviews)

praise for CINDERELLA SMITH: “Funny and clever! Readers will love this modern day Cinderella. It’s a delight…with the most satisfying ending.” (Patricia Reilly Giff, Newbery Honor winner and author of best-selling Polk Street School series)

Format: Kindle Edition
Briefly stated, the characters in this book are the most authentic, fully realized, engaging and respectfully drawn third graders I have yet encountered in early reader fiction. Allow me to explain.

At the outset this book looks like another variation on the quirky girl vanquishes mean girls formula. There's nothing particularly wrong with that, but there are a lot of those books around at the moment and I suspect that even elementary school readers are getting a bit tired of mean girls and bullies. Well, this book will confound you by repeatedly zigging when you expect a zag, and by offering startling and rewarding insights just when you expect the usual.

We start with Cinderella and her best friend, Erin. The friendship between the two is perfectly drawn - each has the other's back and the other's unquestioned loyalty. They are equal partners and completely in sync and supportive of each other. The constitute the BFF ideal and I would have been happy with this book if it were nothing more than a school daze tale that followed these two around on their adventures. Cinderella's "humorous quirk" is that she's always losing one or both of her shoes, (hence the nickname). This is a bit precious, but it ends up being just a low-key running joke so it doesn't really detract from the story.

The balance of the characters are Cinderella's fellow third graders, a few teachers, a few parents, and Cinderella's little sister. All of these characters are surprisingly authentic, realistically drawn, and more important than usual to the overall story. Especially important are the classmates. There are a few who are close to Cinderella, then a few who are less important, and then a few who are incidental.

My Review: Who is Cinderella Smith? She is your modern day Cinderella. A third grade student who is prone to losing her shoes. When the class is assigned a research project on animals, Cinderella is excited as she would like to study ocelots but notice that the books she needed for the research has gone missing from the library. Did the mean bullies take the books? She will just have to investigate and follow every clue until she solves the mystery of the missing books.

If you are a fan of Junie B. Jones or Nancy Drew you will love reading Cinderella Smith. Illustrations by Caldecott Honor winner Diane Goode help to bring the story to life adding an appeal to the Cinderella’s story.

FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book HarperCollins Publishing in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.

Cinderella Smith is one of my favorite characters ever. She's got inspiring spunk and spirit and would be a supportive friend to a second or third grader facing problems such as a wanna-be mean girl or a fall-out with a friend. Familiar faces from the neighborhood and the classroom continue to make Cinderella's world a place where Kids will be happy to be.

I love this book because it is awesome. Awesome awesome awesome. I read two other books, the first and the second and I really liked them.

Cinderella Smith is called that, not because she lives in a firepit or something, but because she always loses her shoes. It's weird that she loses them, it's too crazy, how can she lose them when they're in a shoebox?

I don't like the Rosemarys because they tattle tale on her and I can tell you why. I don't know why they don't like her anymore. Whenever she gets up to do stuff, they notice she's not wearing her shoes and that they're underneath her desk. They say in a mean way, "Cinderella's not wearing her shoes."

She makes me want to read on and on and on.
~ Emma, 3rd Grade
