About the Author

Born in 1974 in Nantes, France, Gerald grew up in nine different cities around the land of cheese. He graduated from the National School of Applied Art (also called Olivier de Serres) in 1998. Gerald's creativity blossomed at a web design company, an event studio, a video-games studio, and then several animations studios. Aside from illustration, Gerald has many other interests, including managing the French Comics Artists association "Rendez-Vous" (which published its first book at Akileos publishing in 2009), or co-leading with the Japanese Artist Daisuke Tsutsumi the artistic and charity project "Sketchtravel," a real sketchbook shared by 70 illustrators from all around the world.

When Trisha Speed Shaskan was a girl, she wanted to become a superhero. Her mother gave her a Wonder Woman costume. Her dad crafted her a tiara and bracelets out of metal to match. Trisha imagined she could fight evil, fly an invisible airplane, and get anyone to tell the truth. While she didn’t grow up to be Wonder Woman, she still uses her imagination to write stories and to teach creative writing. Trisha has taught creative writing to children and adults for thirteen years. She has published 26 books for children, and more are forthcoming. She has an MFA in creative writing from Minnesota State University, Mankato. Trisha currently lives in Minneapolis with her husband, Stephen, and their cat, Eartha, named after Eartha Kitt, famous for her role as Catwoman.

my 9 year old has a cinderella book collection from many countries. we thought this could be cute, but it is a VERY short book. the questions asked in the back of the book are fantastic though, for example, what is different from the story you have heard, who is more believable. also, the pictures were reused on several pages so we spent times counting how many time the picture was reused. we purchased it because we thought it was a great idea (like wicked) but would have enjoyed it more if the story was more in depth. so, we would not recommend purchasing it, but cute to borrow, or just take 6 minutes to read at the library.

If you've had enough with fairy tales, you'll love introducing your children to Seriously, Cinderella is So Annoying!: The Story of Cinderella as Told by the Wicked Stepmother written by Trisha Speed Shaskan. Simply put, this is a mockery of Cinderella's perfect image. From the viewpoint of the jealous stepmother, Cinderella is treated well by every member of the family, but she is just too chatty and oh, so annoying. I like this book, not only for its humor, but also because it is an original take on a tried and true fairy tale. After reading and being told so many quintessential princess stories, this book makes young readers think in fresh, new ways. The cartoon-like illustrations by Gerald Guerlais are colorful and inviting too. In the back of the book the author suggests that readers read the original Cinderella story and compare it to this one. Any book that is funny and encourages children to think outside the box (or should I say castle?) is a winner.

This story was not nearly as good as it could have been. I think I could've come up with something better. It's such a great way to teach point of view. There wasn't much detail or description. The book was flimsy and very short. Little disappointing...

I teach 2nd grade and my students LOVED this book! By the time I got to the middle of it, they were all asking..why Cinderella was so annoying. It's a great book to teach point of view/ versions. Definitely recommend it- the rest of the teachers in my grade level are ordering it as well

My 2nd Grade students enjoyed listening to this "Cinderella" story told from the point of view of the step-mother. It was a good book to introduce point of view and have the students write their own fairy tale told from someone other than the main character.

I bought this book to use with students at school when we were doing a comparison of various versions of Cinderella. The students loved this book. It is hilarious, just lots of fun. It also taught a good lesson on people's points of view - or the other side of the story. It made for some interesting conversation. It was a good addition for my collection The questions at the end of the book are really good for discussions, too.

Trisha Speed Shaskan has crafted a clever tale about life with Cinderella. This book is very comical (and beautifully illustrated), and does an excellent job of teaching point-of-view. Absolutely charming!
