    1. This was given to me as a gift. I wanted to like it, but I don't. The lessons to be learned from it are:*Frumpiness is a virtue called "practicality"; showing up under-dressed to a formal ball is NOT a sign of ineptitude, contrary to popular belief. *Good-looking people are obviously stupid.*Marrying someone after knowing her for only one evening is shallow if based on mutual physical attraction. Marrying someone after knowing her for only one evening is advisable if based on mutual unattractive [...]


    2. Cinder Edna I'm afraid I didn't love this. If it had just been a variation of the Cinderella story with "Cinder Edna" being her plucky, intelligent, outgoing self and the Prince being a bit more quirky and dynamic than fairytale princes are traditionally allowed to be, I probably would have enjoyed it. (Though I'm not a big fan of this style of illustration.) But the foil with the traditional Cinderella and Prince really didn't sit well with me. I didn't like how cynical the "Cinder Edna" retell [...]


    3. This little fable about Cinderella's plain but hard-working neighbor Edna is cute but annoyingly obvious and preachy in a way that I had shoved down my throat all my school-years. I'm sure anyone over age 5 would guess from the beginning that our sympathies are meant to be with with the upbeat Edna as she mows lawns and cleans birdcages (Cinderella cleans all day too, but because she feels sorry for herself I guess we don't have to). We're supposed to admire Edna and her prince, Rupert, because [...]


    4. While I have to a certain and pretty small point enjoyed Cinder Edna (it is indeed rather clever, often humorous, and while I have found Kevin O'Malley's accompanying illustrations much too gaudy, garish and annoyingly cartoon-caricature like for my personal aesthetics, I do have to admit that they work well enough in conjunction with author Ellen Jackson's reimagined, modern-day Cinderella type text), the overt and in-one's-face preachiness does tend to absolutely and majorly stick in my craw ( [...]


    5. I still love the story on this, um, 4th or 5th reread. I don't know that I find it particularly funny, exactly, but I do love the lesson that our own attitude determines our happiness, at least in the modern world. And I have a crush on Rupert myself. As far as it dissing Edna's neighbor, Ella, well, I don't think it did so in a mean way, just strongly enough to make it plain how wrong it is to value beauty so highly over all else. And that is a lesson we're all trying to teach our daughters, so [...]


    6. This was cute, but a bit snarky for my tastes. I liked the overall idea of it and I loved the way Cinder Edna's relationship with her spouse is depicted. But, unfortunately a lot of it was sort of 'mean girl' snarky in feeling. I really wanted to like this one because I love that Cinder Edna is an individual happy to walk to her own beat. HOWEVER, I think that you can be an individual and make your own choices without bashing the choices of someone else. Overall, it's still a good book, but I fe [...]


    7. I absolutely adore this book. Ellen Jackson spins the classic tale of Cinderella to a more critical view when she adds in Cinder Edna, the next-door neighbor. The story we all know is changed completely as we watch Cinderella become the kind of stuck-up princess that her step-sisters were painted as initially. Cinder Edna works for her evil family members as well, but she is so much more down to earth and modern. Jackson has created a double story here where a character from our time mixes with [...]


    8. Summary/A Thoughtful Review: This book, fit for all ages, tells the humorous story of two next-door-neighbors, over-worked, somewhat helpless, Cinderella, and self-motivated, down-to-Earth, Cinder Enda. Cinderella, forced to work for her evil step-sisters and step-mother, is characterized as somewhat of a damsel in distress, sitting among the cinders, wishing to go to the ball, and needing a fairy godmother's help to provide a coach, gown, and glass slippers to get there. Cinder Enda, on the oth [...]


    9. Eh. I'm sure uber feminists who hate fairy tales would love this. It runs parallel with Cinderella's story, but shows Ella in a materialistic, ditzy, helpless role. Meanwhile, Edna is shown to be "smart", resourceful, and practical.It does the same thing with the Prince and his brother who falls for Edna. Rupert makes fun of the prince, Randolph (although we all know Rupert is the prince, just ask Rodgers and Hammerstein) for not asking Cinderella's name, because, duh. He got Edna's. But yet, Ru [...]


    10. I read this when I was learning English. This book is cute and I am surprised I still remember this.


    11. SummaryCinderella and Cinder Edna are next store neighbors with similar lives. They both work for their step mother's and step sister's all day long. However, they have different mindsets when it comes to their life. Cinderella can't wait for her fairy godmother to come and take care of her and to get married to a man that will take care of her as well. Cinder Edna takes life by the horns and makes her own destiny. They both go to the ball where the prince and his brother are looking for a wife. [...]


    12. Cinder Edna, in my opinion, is a great modern day look at the fairy tale Cinderella. In this picturebook Cinderella lives next door to Cinder Edna and both have similar duties while working for their step mothers and step sisters. However, Edna finds the good things in life while Cinderella sits by the cinders and mopes. When it comes time for the ball Cinderella is hopeless and relies on her fairy godmother for everything while Cinder Edna had a dress on layaway and took the bus to the ball. Ed [...]


    13. This book reminds me of a quote by Marjorie Pay Hinckley that I like: "“The only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it. You either have to laugh or cry. I prefer to laugh. Crying gives me a headache.” Cinderella and Cinder Edna both have evil stepmothers and stepsisters that force them to work. But when Cinderella is done, she sits by the cinders and feels sorry for herself. Cinder Edna goes out to mow lawns and clean cages to earn money for herself. When the princes hold a [...]


    14. Cinder Edna by Ellen Jackson isn't your typical Cinderella story. In fact, Cinder Edna is actually Cinderella's neighbor! While Cinderella spends her day tirelessly doing the wash dishes, and resting in ashes and soot at the end of the day, Cidner Edna whistles while she mows the lawn and bakes the best tuna casserole for her not-so nice stepmother and stepsisters. The story continues to compare and contrast the lives of Cinder Edna, who goes to the ball in penny loafers and takes a liking to th [...]


    15. Edna is the somewhat plain but optimistic, practical and hardworking neighbor of Cinderella. While they both work as maids for their step-family, Edna also takes in odd jobs to buy a dress. While Cinderella wails to her fairy godmother that she can't get to the ball, Edna takes the bus. This book was so adorable! I loved this twist on the traditional Cinderella story. I have often been bothered by Cinderella's "passive" lifestyle, and that she just waits around for someone to solve her own probl [...]


    16. Entertaining version of Cinder ell that adds a neighbor named Edna.Wonderful illustrations by Kevin O'Malley.This story was selected as one of the books for the March 2017 - Humor reads at the Picture-Book Club in the Children's Books Group here at .


    17. I love this one! I've read so many Cinderella spin-offs by now, but this one definitely sticks out. Cinderella and Cinder Edna live next door to each other, and both serve their evil stepmother and stepsisters. Cinderella is beautiful--but when she isn't working, she sits in the soot and sighs. Cinder Edna isn't beautiful--but she has spunk and wit! Read the book to find out which one lives happily ever afterd what happily ever after really looks like, too.


    18. This may offend those that love Disney princesses, but it does have a great message about finding happiness your way without trying to fit into a prescribed mold of what "happy" should be.


    19. Cinderella's next door neighbor is in a similar situation, but handles herself much differently. She is more sensible, practical and loves a good joke.


    20. This is possibly one of the cleverest picture books about Cinderella I've ever read. So cute and witty and modern.


    21. Yes, my first book of 2016 is a picture book. My friend's little sister asked me to read it to her, so I did. Cute Cinderella story, well, Cinder Edna story. I enjoyed it.


    22. A cute story for kids about making your own happily ever after, and not relying on chance. Making the best out of a bad situation. Really cute.



    23. Cinder Edna by Ellen Jackson and illustrated by Kevin O'Malley Genre: FairytaleThis book proposes Cinderella's foil, Edna. They are both neighbors put under the same circumstances. This story criticizes Cinderella and the Prince for being kinda dumb and incapable. Edna's actions mirrors the actions of Cinderella but Edna is just more practical. For instance, Cinderella wanted to go to the ball and cried until her fairy godmother arrived and gave her a beautiful gown and carriage. Edna on the oth [...]


    24. I loved this book as a kid. Over the summer at the program I worked at, this was a frequent choice among the kids. The story takes a look at Cinderella's neighbor Edna, who is a hardworking spunky girl. While Cinderella's story focuses on being saved, Cinder Edna is focused on taking care of herself. The story focuses in on a lot of important lessons in this book that kids can take away. For example, Edna works hard, and uses her resources and money to buy a modest dress to wear to the ball, and [...]


    25. Interesting parallel story about Cinderella's neighbor, Edna, who works all day for the step-mom and sisters. They both end up at the ball and leave shoes behind. They dance with royal brothers. Edna is more practical and less pretty than Cinderella. This is a good, solid, believable story, but the characters seem a little old. Good illustrations. Reading level is higher and longer story than most versions. Recommended for Gr. 3-4.


    26. Cinderella and Cinder Edna are neighbors who could not be anymore different. They both have wicked step sisters, but Cinderella is reliant on her fairy godmother, while Cinder Edna is independent. Cinder Edna worries about recycling, takes the bus and finds her prince charming in a quirky man. A different telling of Cinderella which could sound preachy, but a cool alternative look at Cinderella.


    27. PICTURE BOOKS:The illustrations are GREAT! This book is really fun and gives a spin on the cinderella tale that helps children learn how they can live their own happily ever after in a way that is realistic and easy to relate to.


    28. This is a tale of two Cinderellas. Whose life is better? The girl who relied on magical assistance to get her man or the girl who had a life filled with lemons in which she made lemonade.


    29. Cinder Edna is smart and self-sufficient and I liked the comparisons this book makes between Cinder Edna and Cinderella. Cleverly done.
