Underwood, Deborah. Interstellar Cinderella. Illustrated by Meg Hunt. Chronicle Books, 2015. $16.99. ISBN 978-1-4521-2532-9. Ages 5-8. P8Q7
Space meets Cinderella, complete with wicked stepsisters and evil step mother. Instead of a ball it is the Prince’s Space Parade she will miss if she doesn’t fix a broken ship. Luckily she has been studying. Cinderella can fix many things, but dreams of repairing spaceships. She makes it to the parade, fixes the Prince’s spaceship. A proposal brings an unexpected ending to this brightly illustrated remake of Cinderella.
VERDICT: Girls can be anything they want to be even if it is a spaceship mechanic.
