A fresh, funny and fabulous take on Cinderella!

A magic girl.
A talking dog.
Let’s get this party started . . .

Cinders lives a boring life with her selfish stepsisters and mean stepmother. So when her wishes start magically coming true it’s a surprise to say the least.

Perfect for readers of 7–9, Cinders & Sparks is a fresh, funny and fabulous take on Cinderella, for everyone who loved Frozen and Shrek.
