Book Review - Cinderella Goes to the Potty


Isfits . . . postmodern fairy tales and cautionary confessions.
Cinderella scratched a new line on the wall every night when the clock struck twelve. For 999 nights, she'd sworn to herself that she wouldn't stay long enough to see 1000. Cinderella heard the old man and the old woman clunking up the stairs. The clock began to chime. Cinderella was out of time. She had a decision to make---the kind of decision that could change her life or take it from her.

This is a very unusual book. It reminds me very much of the Tim Burton type things and, for that reason, I would definitely not recommend this book to younger children. Honestly, the illustrations even felt creepy to me so I would say children under 13 shouldn't be allowed to read this book.

This book is not about potty training - lest the title confuse you - it's about a child being held against her will with the plan of feeding her to the Potty. It's a twisted fairy tale on the order of the Grimm fairy tales with a whole lot of Tim Burton type stuff thrown in for good measure. Since I don't like that type of story or illustration, it was hard for me to even read this book.

I actually found the story to be a bit dark for my taste, but I know that older children find that kind of illustration and story to their liking, so I'm sure they would enjoy it.
