The story could have been good if the prince hadn't been depicted as more of a farm boy than royalty. Checking fences?? Some parts of the story didn't make sense, like him digging a hole to plant a tree in the road where coaches drive. The illustrations were so Disney-like I'm surprised there haven't been accusations of plagiarism. Not recommended.

Disappointingly, the prince's perspective fails to add much depth the story, since he and Cinderella don't talk or interact, although they see each other a few times before the ball -- their feelings are still pretty much based on looks. The prince is kind of dumb, and it bothered me how unpleasant he was to the other girls who were introduced as prospective brides.

The illustrations were okay very like Disney in style.

I didn't realize the author was also a bookcrosser...or maybe I did. i have had this book on my wishlist forever, and finally picked it up on Amazon.

I am a sucker for Cinderella tales (and just added a few more to my wishlist...sigh) -- this one is told from the Prince's view and the story changes just a little bit, in a nice way. I enjoyed this little tale quite a lot and will be keeping this book.

A delightful twist on the Cinderella story, as told from the prince's point of view - and what a sensible point of view it is! I'm thinking that there is much more of a chance for a happy ever after with this Prince and Cynthia than the original version. (Plus I'm delighted to read a book by another BookCrosser.)

I am the illustrator of this book - keep an eye out for my dog Bernie and the mice who cause trouble throughout.

This is the classic Cinderella story, but from the Prince's point of view.

Sweet children's book from Cinderella's Prince's point of view. Fabulous illustrations by Georgia illustrator Elizabeth O. Dulemba.

Another variation of Cinderella-- but this one is told from the prince's perspective.
