Interstellar Cinderella by Deborah Underwood is true to most of the elements of the original fairy tale, but this Cinderella is a girl living in outer space who dreams of fixing rockets. She spends her time fixing robot dishwashers, but she studies rocket ship repair every night. When Cinderella is forbidden from attending the Royal Space Parade and Gravity Ball, Murgatroyd the mouse calls on the fairy godrobot, who gives Cinderella a new space suit and a power gem to power her rocket…but only until midnight. On the way to the parade, Cinderella spots the prince, whose rocket ship has broken down. She fixes his ship and they ride to the Gravity Ball together. At midnight, Cinderella has to leave, but she drops her socket wrench. The prince searches far and wide for the owner of the wrench and when he finally finds her, this Cinderella ends her story with a bit of a twist on the classic version. With Cinderella re-imagined as a smart, independent girl, and rhyming text that adds to the classic feel, kids and adults alike will enjoy this fractured fairy tale that proves with a bit of determination, your dreams can come true!
