Synopsis

Magic, magic, work on all, Get Cinderella to the ball! Meet a fashion-conscious fairy godmother with a difference in this stylish reworking of the classic fairy tale by a new brother-and-sister creative duo. Cinderella moves into the era of flapper girls and the Charleston in a new edition of this famous tale of rags to riches. Too blind to see what he is doing. Cinderella's father marries unwisely and brings home a heartless wife, her argumentative daughters and nasty little dog, who make life miserable for Cinderella until she triumphs in the marriage stakes. Fashion illustrator David Roberts brings all these characters to life in his meticulously researched drawings - Cinderella: the two stepsisters. Ermintrude and Eloise: the stepmother; Butch the dog: father; and of course, the chinless Prince. Lynn Roberts has crafted a humorous story straight from the art deco period that perfectly complements her brother's drawings.

The Telegraph

The gargantuan club beats and indelible vocal hooks are as one might expect, but it’s Roberts’s autobiographical lyrics - notably tackling body image - that consistently startle, recalling the aching sincerity of diminutive Swede Robyn.

Very much the fifth member of Girls Aloud, the one with the uncomfortable look: even more uncomfortable now she has new gnashers that don’t seem to fit her mouth.
