Sootypaws: A Cinderella Story by Maggie Rudy - ADVISABLE

Sootypaws: A Cinderella Story by Maggie Rudy. PICTURE BOOK. Godwin Books (Macmillan), 2020. $18. 9781250186041



The little mouse’s father remarried a rat and then died, leaving her behind to toil for her steprat mother and steprat sisters.  They called her Sootypaws.  When the call goes out for the Prince’s ball, the creatures that Sootypaws has been kind to over the years help her prepare in secret.

Rudy has translated the Cinderella story in a magically realistic version for mice.  The human-like hands are a bit odd, but I adore her ending twist!
