What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

This dreamy, alliterative and different Cinderella story will have readers doubling over with delight. Dinorella is dying to go to the dance, but her dreadful stepsisters, Doris and Dora, declare she’s too dowdy and dull. Dinorella is stuck in the den–until Fairy-dactyl arrives and bedecks Dinorella with some dazzling diamonds, allowing her to depart for the dance. Full color.

If it weren’t for all the name calling (which I hate to encourage), I’d rate this every so slightly higher, as it had some unique moments.
