This is a modern retelling of a classic fairy tale - magic! Not one ball but three. The tiniest, most magical slippers you could imagine. Two thoroughly nasty sisters...and a stepmother who is, ooh, HORRID! Fall for this sparkling retelling in which a dreamy prince captures Cinderella's heart on the dance floor! Niamh Sharkey creates a flamboyant fairy tale cast, and Max Eilenberg's text conjures magic and delight, with a lacing of wicked humour! This is a comic and fast-moving retelling of Charles Perrault's much loved story. Niamh Sharkey's "On the Road with Mavis and Marge" won an Irish Children's Book of the Year award in 2010. You can watch "Huggle Monsters" on TV this autumn - the Disney animation of Niamh Sharkey's "I'm a Happy Hugglewug", to be screened in over 150 territories.
