"Comical and neat, with unusual twists and turns, this retold tale will immediately grab children’s attention and will make them wonder who can fix Cinderella’s problem. Children and parents will enjoy the silliness of the story and will chuckle at the whimsy of the amusing characters. Simple but fun illustrations pull the whole story together. The artwork is full of expression and wit and could tell the story on its own."
Mrs. D., award-winning children’s author
"Cinderella’s Secret Slipper is quite impressive and it’s highly recommended. […] Checinski’s illustrations are marvelous! They’re bold and brightly colored and fit the dialogue to a tee."
Rating: 5 stars from Jack Magnus from Readers’ Favorite
"For children of all ages who wonder what happens when characters are said to live happily ever after, Ms Rutkowska gives us a glimpse, and does so with her usual cleverness and creative thinking.  The story is strikingly illustrated, beautifully written, and highly recommended by this writer."
Dan Cohen, award-winning children’s author
"Brilliant, bright-colored illustrations are a delightful addition to this enchanted story.  And, there’s a “quiz” at the end to ensure young readers comprehend the story. I give Cinderella’s Secret Slipper a “five star” rating!"
Debra Latiolais, award-winning children’s author
"Cinderella's Secret Slipper" is a story of our favorite princess who more than anything else wants to wear her famous glass slippers to her son's birthday party. But she can't because her four-year-old smashed one of them in an attempt at killing a mosquito on the wall. Where is she going to get a glass slipper now? 

My take on this book:
 Cinderella finds herself in a real dilemma, she wants to wear her glass slippers to her sons birthday party but one is broken so what in the world is she going to do? 

This fun filled story put a grin on my face as  I imagined the plight of Cinderella and the reason she needed a new glass slipper! The colorful illustrations are paired perfectly with the written word to bring this story to life. Fast paced and fun to read, youngsters imaginations will be sparked into overdrive as Cinderella tries to solve her dilemma. There is even a quiz included which is a fun way to ensure that youngsters understand the story. An added bonus is that the classic  Cinderella fairy tale is included at the end of the story. A fun glimpse into the life of Cinderella and her Prince after the happily ever after ended and real life began!
