Book Review – Seriously, Cinderella Is SO Annoying!

Normally, I don’t go in for revisionist history, but when it comes to fairy tales I’m ready to be taken on a journey. Especially, as society has changed so much since the days when I used to wait for my prince to come. That is why this years Seriously, Cinderella Is So Annoying!; The Story of Cinderella as Told by the Wicked Stepmother is pretty funny. The story by Trisha Speed Shaskan with art by Gerald Guerlais features the wicked stepmother telling the story of Cinderella. Of course, LTD doesn’t really understand irony or sarcasm (believe me, I have tried), but the tale makes me laugh and after a long day sometimes that is more important. The basic gist is that the stepmother was just looking to get married to this nice guy and was happy to help him raise his daughter who she calls Cindy. However, problems begin right away with the house being run down and full of dust. Another obstacle is the fact that Cindy won’t stop talking and telling stories about robins, sparrows, squirrels and rats helping her with the laundry and other chores, as if. Another hiccup occurs at the ball where the stepmother’s daughters are dancing and having a good time when this real knockout basically crashes the party. As usual, I won’t spoil the ending, but it involves advice for the prince who marries Cindy.
