As a space age, craft soaring mind and Jetsons lover this book was very interesting! I loved Cinderella story as a child and finding it entertaining still today but this brought a scientific twist that was brilliantly done.

This princess book about a capable, independent, and reasonable princess is very refreshing! It is well written and holds my toddler’s interest.

A feminist Cinderella retelling for the pint-sized crowd, or for adults who just really enjoy picture books. Little ones can learn all about following their dreams, being independent, overcoming adversity without emphasizing true love as the main goal in life. LOVED IT.

Such a fun spin on Cinderella! She's too young for marriage, but she'll be the prince's chief rocket mechanic :D

Cinderella modernized! Outer space is the place and a wrench is what the prince has to match....but there's a new and empowered ending to this story!

A wonderful book in which Cinderella is a space mechanic and lives happily ever after fixing rockets instead of marrying the prince. The art is great and it's a fun twist on an old story.

My 3 year old loved this book and we loved the fresh spin on a very dated Cinderella story!

This is a really clever, reimagined Cinderella tale where Cinderella is chosen not for her beauty and shoe size but her spaceship mechanic skills. Great read for those who like fairy tales and space/robot adventures as well as female characters who make their own way!

A futuristic retelling of Cinderella where she is a space mechanic sought after by the prince for her superior mechanical skills. The rhyming text is clever and fun- especially given the robot and space vocabulary used. The vivid illustrations add to the story as well and will make this a fun picture book to read over and over.

She landed right beside the prince. "That wrench is mine!" she cried. She quickly fixed the ailing ship. The prince said, "Be my bride!". She thought this over carefully. Her family watched in panic. "I'm far too young for marriage, but I'll be your chief mechanic."
