"Cinderelephant, mop the floor!"
Poor Cinderelephant! The Warty Sisters never say please or thank you (how rude!), and when she asks to go to the grand ball, they just laugh. "Whoever would want to dance with YOU?"
Little do they know, Cinderelephant has a Furry Godmouse on her side! And with a little help... and the right pair of shoes... anything is possible.
About the Author
"Dodd's rhymes bounce along blithely, combined with bold digital illustrations of alarmed-looking animals with textural fur, wool, and feathers that bleed past their thick outlines.... [T]he gag of mixed-up animal sounds will likely keep readers laughing until the cows come home." -- Publishers Weekly
"The book demands to be read aloud so children can join in the cacophony -- and with this book, they will learn the meaning of the word. Even Old MacDonald will applaud this edgy addition to the canon of books about mixed-up animal sounds." -- Kirkus Reviews
"A mischievous and inexplicably magical cat, irritated by the barnyard cacophony, robs the rooster of his cock-a-doodle-doo. Soon, the rooster squeaks and the pigs cluck, as all the animals and their customary noises are switched around... [M]ixing things up... makes learning animal sounds considerably more entertaining." -- New York Times
"The rollicking text is paired with large, colorful digitally produced art that has the kinetic animals fairly popping off the spreads as they figure a way out of their dilemma. Varied perspectives keep the action going, and the text is integrated flawlessly into the art.... [Y]oung readers will appreciate the frolic and fun and the saucy cat's comeuppance at the end." -- School Library Journal
