"Cinderella and the Furry Slippers", de Davide Cali, com ilustrações de Raphaelle Barbanegre, foi-me cedido pela Netgalley e pelo editor, para que eu fizesse uma apreciação honesta deste livro. Não há de momento edição em português. O lançamento da versão original em inglês só está prevista para 10 de Outubro deste ano.
Publiquei a minha opinião no Goodreads com 4/5 estrelas e a seguinte "review":
"Cinderella and the Furry Slippers" is a modern version of the traditional tale. This poor girl, with the bad stepmother and the awful sisters, dreams with the prince she sees in the magazines. When a ball is announced, she makes a call for a godmother and asks her for a dress as she has seen in a fashion magazine…from now on nothing in this book is as we come to expect (not even the slippers!). In the end, Cinderella runs from the disgusting prince and finds a job fair where she discovers new life perspectives. She finally feels empowered and independent, a princess of today to inspire nowadays girls. The illustrations complement well the text: they are both great fun! This is a short tale for children who have a sense of humor and like to be surprised. I was provided with an arc of this book by Netgalley and the publisher, so I could give an honest review.
DON'T SCRATCH Don’t scratch at a mosquito bite. It’s rude. It’s crude. It’s impolite. Don’t scratch at scabs. Don’t scratch your nose. Don’t scratch the stuff between your toes. Don’t ever scratch at chicken pox. Or poison oak. Or woolen socks. (You know, sometimes I can’t recall Why I have fingernails at all.) Glynnis Campbell
