This dreamy, alliterative and different Cinderella story will have readers doubling over with delight. Dinorella is dying to go to the dance, but her dreadful stepsisters, Doris and Dora, declare she's too dowdy and dull. Dinorella is stuck in the den--until Fairy-dactyl arrives and bedecks Dinorella with some dazzling diamonds, allowing her to depart for the dance. Full color.

This book tells the story of Cinderella, but using dinosaurs as the main characters. It is more suitable for younger students and could be used in a lower grade level fantasy unit. It would be interesting to juxtapose this text with other Cinderella tales. Read full review

Cute takeoff of the Fairy Tale Cinderella. Had its own twist. Very enjoyable just for enteratainment but can also be used to do a great compare and contrast lesson with Cinderella. Great start for what if questions or for writing your own story. Read full review

About the author (1997)

Pamela Duncan Edwards (www.pameladuncanedwards.net) grew up in northern England and now lives in the Washington, D.C. area with her husband and two sons. Her father wrote children's stories for magazines in England and his love of children's literature was a huge influence on her. Pamela taught preschool for eleven years in England before becoming a children's librarian when she moved to the United States. Because of her teaching background, Pamela's books present early learning concepts and use many literary devices, but also entertain as they teach. She believes laughter is a great learning tool. For more than a decade Pamela has wowed audiences with a wealth of winning tales and continues to inspire young ones to read.
