What is better than a rhymed-and-metered picture book that really scans? Why, one that breaks stereotypes and shouts GIRL POWER, that's what! And that is exactly what Deborah Underwood's INTERSTELLAR CINDERELLA does. Deborah's Cinderella is mechanically inclined, and when she finds the wrench she lost at the space parade, she uses it to fix the prince's damaged spaceship and decides maybe his resulting offer of marriage isn't right for her. (And she's got a cute robot mouse sidekick, too.)
We're very happy that Melissa Manlove at Chronicle has just acquired this picture book—EMLA's first picture book on the Chronicle list!
Huge congratulations, Deborah!
