Weird book

So freaking CUTE! I loved this book. Very clever. The surprise twist at the end was delightful. ( )

This is a nice fractured fairy tale. I enjoyed the twists and the altered character of the Cinderella-like Chickerella. She's certainly a more independent soul than the traditional character. I think kids would enjoy this. It'd be good for a fractured fairy tale discussion. ( )

Summary: This is a different version of the well known Cinderella Story, but instead of humans each characters is a chicken and instead of losing her glass slipper Chickerella lays a glass egg and that is what the prince uses to help find his chicken princess.
Genre: Fantasy:
Media: Photographs of pre-made sculptures.

This book would be good to read to second graders. It has more words on each page, and you could relate this to a lesson with fairy tales in literature.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0823420159, Paperback)

When Chickerella's new stepmother and stepsisters, Ovumelda and Cholestera, move in, life in the chicken coop takes a turn for the worse. Forced to cook and clean for her new family, Chickerella won't even be able to attend the Fowl Ball, that is, until her Fairy Goosemother appears. The unusually stylish Chickerella dazzles the prince in her eggsquisite gown, but at the stroke of midnight she must race home before the spell is over. Will the prince ever be able to find his love? Only a glass egg remains as a clue to her identity.
