    A quirky, fun and deliciously ghoulish adaptation of the Cinderella fairy tale, this is a perfect story for a Halloween read aloud I don t want to give away too many spoilers, but Cinderella and all of the other characters are skeletons, they live in a mausoleum, and the Prince s name is Prince Charnel, instead of Prince Charming, perfect Although some sensitive, easily spooked children might find the lush, descriptively ghoulish illustrations a bit creepy parents should make sure that the i A quirky, fun and deliciously ghoulish adaptation of the Cinderella fairy tale, this is a perfect story for a Halloween read aloud I don t want to give away too many spoilers, but Cinderella and all of the other characters are skeletons, they live in a mausoleum, and the Prince s name is Prince Charnel, instead of Prince Charming, perfect Although some sensitive, easily spooked children might find the lush, descriptively ghoulish illustrations a bit creepy parents should make sure that the illustrations will not be too frightening and spooky before reading this tale with or to their children , the story itself is actually quite sweet and not all that frightening with some interesting and humorous twists, like Cinderella Skeleton s stepfamily leaving for the ball in a hearse, and Cinderella being claimed by her prince by means of a lost foot instead of a lost glass slipper I don t know if I like the illustrations in and of themselves, and I do wonder wether some of the illustrations would have perhaps frightened me a bit as a child first reading Cinderella Skeleton as an adult, I find the illustrations creepy, but fun, a perfect complement to the ghoulishly quirky, poetic narrative However, the story, the narrative had me smiling and giggling right from the start, and I think I would have enjoyed the story even as a child, the rather creepy and ghoulish illustrations notwithstanding I have always enjoyed clever, fun adaptations of fairy tales, and Cinderella Skeleton is truly fun and imaginative, while at the same time retaining the general feel, the emotions, the themes of the original story.As a final word, I kind of wish that the author had included some supplementary material about Cinderella like tales and their place in world folklore since this isof an original adaptation, the lack of an author s note is not as noticeable, but the folklorist in me still misses it somewhat

    Cinderella Skeleton is a Halloween version of the classic fairy tale by the master of storytelling, Robert D San Souci, along with spooky illustrations by David Catrow This book is about a young and beautiful according to her spooky world skeleton named Cinderella Skeleton who wants to go to the Halloween Ball and dance with Prince Charnel Cinderella Skeleton might be a bit too scary for smaller children, but older children will definitely love this creepy retelling of the classic fairy Cinderella Skeleton is a Halloween version of the classic fairy tale by the master of storytelling, Robert D San Souci, along with spooky illustrations by David Catrow This book is about a young and beautiful according to her spooky world skeleton named Cinderella Skeleton who wants to go to the Halloween Ball and dance with Prince Charnel Cinderella Skeleton might be a bit too scary for smaller children, but older children will definitely love this creepy retelling of the classic fairy tale.Robert D San Souci has done a terrific job at retelling this classic fairy tale in aHalloween spirited tone as all the characters in this book are skeletons and monsters instead of human beings that the original story portrayed, which makes this book extremely creative to read since it is Halloween themed Robert D San Souci makes the story perfectly spooky yet creative as the story is told through a rhyming prose while using such effective words such as mausoleum and bombazine to describe the haunting world that Cinderella Skeleton lives in David Catrow s illustrations are delightfully creepy yet beautiful at the same time as the world around Cinderella Skeleton is dark and bleak and Cinderella Skeleton herself is beautiful as opposed to the dark world she lives in as she wears a white torn silk dress that looks like it is made of spider webs which makes her look hauntingly elegant Also, the image of Prince Charnel himself is somewhat frightening yet he has a handsome physique and he wears a soldier s uniform that is covered with roaches and he carries a large red, white and black striped snake around the left side of his shoulders, giving him an elegant yet eerie appearance.Parents should know that there are some genuinely frightening images in this book such as the images of the various monsters that attend the Halloween Ball as some of them have eyeballs missing from their heads and even the skeleton characters look somewhat frightening as they have holes in their eye sockets that look empty and eerie Another image that might scare smaller children would be the image where Cinderella Skeleton losses her foot at the ball even though she is a skeleton and small children might worry that they might lose their feet too Parents might want to read this book first before they show it to their children to see what their reactions are to such haunting images Cinderella Skeleton is a truly uplifting and haunting retelling of the classic fairy tale that many children will love for a long time I would recommend this book to children ages six and up due to the frightening images and some complicated words like mausoleum Review is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog

    A book that is kind of all concept no story Well, it s a retelling of Cinderella that doesn t really do anything new outside of the conceptual setting And the art, while I can see why so many people enjoy it, isn t really in a style that draws me in Perhaps if I hadn t watched Corpse Bride so many times some of the humor might have delighted me But instead, it just seemed a bit tired this is a low three stars for me, and I m giving it that because there is a real sense of immersion in the w A book that is kind of all concept no story Well, it s a retelling of Cinderella that doesn t really do anything new outside of the conceptual setting And the art, while I can see why so many people enjoy it, isn t really in a style that draws me in Perhaps if I hadn t watched Corpse Bride so many times some of the humor might have delighted me But instead, it just seemed a bit tired this is a low three stars for me, and I m giving it that because there is a real sense of immersion in the world and tone of the book from the detailed richness of the illustrations

    I LOVED this version of Cinderella The story is almost exactly the same as the traditional Disney version, however the twist is that the main characters are all skeletons Instead of losing a glass slipper, Cinderella s foot bone snaps off So the prince searches the land while skeletons everywhere snap off their foot bones in the hope that the foot bone he has will fit The reasons I loved this story are twofold the poetic language and the illustrations This story is written in poetry form I LOVED this version of Cinderella The story is almost exactly the same as the traditional Disney version, however the twist is that the main characters are all skeletons Instead of losing a glass slipper, Cinderella s foot bone snaps off So the prince searches the land while skeletons everywhere snap off their foot bones in the hope that the foot bone he has will fit The reasons I loved this story are twofold the poetic language and the illustrations This story is written in poetry form and the vocabulary and imagery are fantastic Stanzas like the following provide amazing imagery and introduce students to the power of word choice Her build was long and lean and lank her dankish hair hung down in hanks her nails were yellow her teeth were green the ghastliest haunt you ve ever seen In addition, the illustrations are straight out of a Tim Burton film They are dark, haunting, creepy, and fun You could stare at these pictures for hours and discover something new every time Little details like dandelion coming out of Cinderella s head, or the bugs crawling out of the prince s sleeve add humor and fun to these pictures I think the illustrations would be a combination of romanticism and impressionism.I would use this book with older students in grade 5 8 The vocabulary alone would make this an amazing lesson on word choice In addition, like I mentioned with The Irish Cinderlad, this would be a great story to use with 8th grade CC Standards showing alternate versions and perspectives of Cinderella This would be such a fun read during Halloween season in your classroom I would have students rewrite other fairytales using a creepy twist and modeling the author s poetic writing style There were no cultural connections with this book unless one believes in the undead culture I could not find any weaknesses with this version I just loved it

    This is a wonderful retelling of Cinderella written in rhyme However, the author cleverly makes Cinderella a skeleton who lives with her terrible stepmother and stepsisters in a mausoleum I certainly enjoy the choice of names like Skreech, Gristlene and Bony Jane Cinderella Skeleton is even hoping to meet her Prince Charnel David Catrow s detailed illustrations are spooking, humorous and add just the right touch of creepiness to this wonderful story.

    Such a magical tale told in an odd but beautiful taste This book was a gem to read as it had a Tim Burton feel to it My son and I loved this book I especially loved the beautiful breath taking illustrations Now I m trying to restrain my self from cutting pictures out of this boardbook

    Your teeth like polished kidney stones This is a children s retelling of Cinderella It s short and took about 5 minutes to read.I really enjoyed the poetic aspect of the story, and the illustrations were stunning enough to earn 5 stars all on their own.
