Cinderella Liberator

In this modern twist on the classic story, Cinderella — who would rather just be Ella — meets her fairy godmother, goes to a ball, and makes friends with a prince. But that is where the familiar story ends. Instead of waiting to be rescued, Cinderella learns that she can save herself and those around her by being true to herself and standing up for what she believes.

In her debut children's book Rebecca Solnit, author of adult bestsellers like Men Explain Things To Me, reimagines a classic fairytale with a fresh, feminist Cinderella and new plot twists that will inspire young readers to change the world. This progressive retelling of a classic fairy tale, featuring gorgeous silhouettes from Arthur Rackham on each page, urges young readers to find fulfillment in the places that fit them best.

"No one falls in love, the prince wishes he was a farmer, and the stepsisters eventually apologize to Cinderella, who herself says, 'It was very interesting to see all the fancy clothes... but even more interesting to see lizards become footwomen'.... Illustrations based on Rackham’s masterful, timeless silhouettes offer a counterpoint to a text that is very much of the moment." — Publishers Weekly
