9780140555523: Cinderella Penguin, or, The Little Glass Flipper

All cultures share the traditional story of Cinderella--even penguin culture!

Poor Cinderella Penguin is bossed and bullied by her evil penguin stepsisters as they get dolled up for the Penguin Prince's ball. After they have gone, a penguin tear rolls down Cinderella's cheek. "Suddenly, in a glow of bright blue light, the Great Fairy Penguin appeared before her." And the rest is penguin history."

A Children's Choice Award winner

"Lots of fun."--Booklist

About the Author:

Janet Perlman is the author and illustrator of four children's books. Cinderella Penguin, The Emperor Penguin's New Clothes and The Penguin and the Pea are all "penguinized" versions of well-known fairy tales. Her latest book, The Delicious Bug, is based on her animated film, Dinner For Two, which is not about penguins. And her satirical graphic novel, Penguins Behind Bars, became a TV special which she directed for Cartoon Network.

Janet Perlman has taught animation at Harvard, the Rhode Island School of Design, and Concordia University, and has given workshops in animation around the world.

Now she works from her home studio in Montréal, Canada, where she creates most of her work on the computer, surrounded by poodle paintings and scary clown figurines.

Review:

Having taken the delightfully ridiculous decision to make Cinderella a penguin, Janet Perlman writes the familiar story with a straight face, and is always consistent. It's the illustrations that make this book hilarious. (The Globe and Mail 199206)

it's the funny, full-color illustrations that really make the book a success: penguins cinching corsets, “Lady and the Penguin” tapestries on the palace wall, the Prince and Cinderella dancing a tango. These wide-eyed characters are full of personality. An amusing variant with a silly premise that works throughout the book. (School Library Journal 199308)
