Don't cook Cinderella is a school story with a twist.

“No more Latin, no more French, No more sitting on a hard school bench. No more dirty bread and butter, No more water from the gutter. No more maggots in the ham, No more yukky bread and jam. No more milk in dirty jugs, No more cabbage boiled with slugs. Now’s the time to say hurray. We’re eating the Infants today!” 0 likes
