About the Author
Comical and neat, with unusual twists and turns, this retold tale will immediately grab children’s attention and will make them wonder who can fix Cinderella’s problem. Children and parents will enjoy the silliness of the story and will chuckle at the whimsy of the amusing characters. Simple but fun illustrations pull the whole story together. The artwork is full of expression and wit and could tell the story on its own.
Mrs. D., award-winning children’s author
For children of all ages who wonder what happens when characters are said to live happily ever after, Ms Rutkowska gives us a glimpse, and does so with her usual cleverness and creative thinking. The story is strikingly illustrated, beautifully written, and highly recommended by this writer.
Dan Cohen, award-winning children’s author
Brilliant, bright-colored illustrations are a delightful addition to this enchanted story. And, there’s a “quiz” at the end to ensure young readers comprehend the story. I give Cinderella’s Secret Slipper a “five star” rating!

You MUST have this book. It is sure to become a cherished story for many years to come. I did receive a copy of this book from the author. But this is an HONEST review. You will love it!
From the Shoe Store to the Glass Repair store, Cinderella went, desperately trying to find someone to fix her glass slipper. Nobody could fix it, so she decided to go for a walk to her favorite place to relax, the Enchanted Forest. There she began to cheer up, noticing the beautiful flowers and the birds chirping cheerfully...she heard a voice say "You're back, my child." it was her Fairy Godmother! The Fairy Godmother fixed Cinderella's shoes just in time for the party. And when it was time for their son to open his presents, The Prince gave Junior a special gift...a mosquito bat, so he wouldn't use his mothers shoes anymore. The Prince being the romantic he is, gave Cinderella a gift too...inside was a new pair of glass slippers, "Just in case Junior loses his bat."
Cinderella's Secret Slipper is an adorable read with colorful and fun illustrations by Konrad Checinski. It's exciting to see another take on Cinderella, in her happily ever after life with the Prince and their growing family. It's a story little girls all over the world will love!
I received a complimentary copy to review. All opinions my own.
This is a fairy tale take off of CINDERELLA. It is a children's picture book with such lovely and cute illustrations throughout, that are bright and colorful. Cinderella and Prince Charming want to do something really special for the fourth birthday of their son, Junior. They decided to have a gala party. Cinderella is to wear the glass slippers that she wore when they met. When she goes to check on the slippers, which she thinks are safely in her closet, she finds that one is missing. Cinderella has one slipper, what is she to do? Glass slippers are not easy to come by, especially since these slippers were special. They were worn when she met Prince Charming.What happened to the other slipper?
She soon found out that Junior had taken the slipper and was smashing mosquitoes with it. What happened? The slipper broke. How is Cinderella going to fix that slipper? Can it be done? What will Junior face as a punishment for taking the slipper and breaking it? the author wrote an interesting and fun take off of CINDERELLA. She also added a bit of suspense as to how the slipper was going to be fixed. The book is a wonderful book for children of all ages and those of us who are children at heart. It makes for a good bedtime or nap time story. Children will love reading or having the book read to them and they will look at the illustrations as they read the book. Get a copy for you or your children, grandchildren or any child that loves to read or be read to. You'll enjoy the journey of Cinderella as she tries to find a way to fix her slipper. A Wonderful children's book with a twist and turn on the fairy tale, CINDERELLA.
I received a complimentary copy of CINDERELLA'S SECRET SLIPPER from the author, Alinka Rutkowska for my view of the book.
This also has an educational component in that the story is followed by questions. That stimulates comprehension and can be a clarion call to alert parents to any possible learning disabilities to work on.
As a retired teacher of 34 years, I can strongly recommend this for early elementary school teachers. It definitely belongs in grades K-4.
Finally kudos to this author for assembling a talented team of artists to give this offering a bright, unique, and colorful appearance.
