Grade 2–3—In a market glutted with fairy-tale retellings, one might feel justified in saying, "Absolutely no more Cinderella variations!" However, this accessible early reader about a kindhearted mutt with sorrowful eyes, her wicked stepfamily, and a princess who wants a dog more than anything else in the world is sweet, thoughtfully written, and appealing in its readability. Boelts avoids obvious arch doggy-puns in favor of a story that reveals the universal longing for companionship and compassion over material wealth and extra-fluffy tails. Wu's color illustrations complement the text with gentle humor.—Farida S. Dowler, formerly at Mercer Island Library, WA

My six year old daughter LOVES this book! It’s based on the story of Cinderella and does a great job telling the story with fun and humor. It’s one of our favorite story books and has been read over and over again, many times.
To dogerella and I don't like the part when the stepmother said dogerella can't go to the ball.
Because i'm in 1st grade and I'm in reading level three.
