Fantastical space-age illustrations, inventive rhyming text, and a playful spin on the classic Cinderella story make this fairy tale retelling a worthwhile addition to any bookshelf! This Cinderella is a whiz at rocket repair and dreams of working on the fastest starships. The prince notices her not for her appearance, but because of her quick handiwork with a socket wrench. This would make a great gift for any fairy tale enthusiast or gear-head of any age (or any gender)!
