What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Once upon a planetoid, amid her tools and sprockets, a girl named Cinderella dreamed of fixing fancy rockets. With a little help from her fairy godrobot, Cinderella is going to the ball. But when the prince’s ship has mechanical trouble, someone will have to zoom to the rescue! Readers will thank their lucky stars for this irrepressible fairy tale retelling, its independent heroine, and its stellar happy ending.

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
6.0 / 7.0

Rhyming text accompanies this brightly colored Cinderella riff for the modern girl. This version set in space updates some aspects of the classic story modern readers may find incongruous (the prince not being able to recognize Cinderella by just looking at her, a shoe fitting only one person, etc.) and ends on a note independent women will adore: “I’m far too young for marriage, but I’ll be your chief mechanic”.
