Cinder makes you romp to her tune.

Cinder works very hard every day at home to clean her aunt's and cousin's mess. But she does it happily while practising her dance moves. Then, one day she overhears her cousins' conversations about a disco competition by the disco king, Travis, where the winner gets to be his dance partner. She wanted to go not to win but to show off her moves. That's not easy. She had a truckload of mess to clean at home. What's next? Yup, you guessed the story right.



We typically read a book because we spotted it in a library, bookstore, or someone recommended it. But, we came across Cindergorilla because someone forwarded a youtube link to a song that accompanied this book. It was peppy and fun. So, we read the book after watching the video.


We are not big fairytale fans, but this book, a Cinderella's retelling, is worth reading. Of course, we all know the story, but this book stands out for its illustrations - bright and beautiful. The story is about self-confidence, patience and perseverance leading to victory.



Kids will definitely enjoy this book as a bedtime read with positive affirmations.
