Meet Cinderella Skeleton, as sweetly foul as only a ghoul can be. Poor Cinderella has no one to help her hang the cobwebs and arrange dead flowers — certainly not her evil stepsisters. But the Halloween Ball is just around the corner. Will Cinderella find happiness at last?
Robert San Souci and award-winning illustrator David Catrow retell the Cinderella story with a hilarious twist. This time Cinderella is … a skeleton. Evil stepsisters, Prince Charnel, and a Halloween Ball are all wrapped into one comical fractured fairy tale.
