Book Review: Cinderfella by Malachy Doyle and Matt Hunt
Cinderfella is a fun and interesting read, with a twist on the classic fairytale, Cinderella. This time we see a young boy who is treated badly by his brothers.
The story is similar to a point, but the focus is on two soon-to-be friends as opposed to a romantic relationship. I love the bright and colourful illustrations, full of fun and descriptive pictures to match the writing.
The writing is consistent and funny, and it’s very easy for children to follow and join in with. I think my two really enjoyed reading it!
The concept of friendship and being ‘cool’ is covered with examples of kindness and inclusion as opposed to the brother’s spiteful and selfish attitudes. I really like this kind of thing in a kids book!
