Prince Cinders


This book tells the story of Prince Cinders who has a difficult time with his three big hairy brothers. Things change for Prince Cinders when he meets a fairy who helps him get ready for the disco.


Though this book follows the same narrative trajectory as the classic Cinderella story, but with a male protagonist, the fact that Prince Cinders does not fit into the expressions of hegemonic masculinity often found in fairy tales is significant.
