I would like to thank Edelweiss and Schiffer Publishing for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I have always loved reading various fairy tale retellings and I was in the mood to read another “Cinderella” retelling So I went on Edelweiss and I stumbled upon this unusual story called “If the Shoe Fits” by Deborah Guarino along with artwork by Seth Hippen and man was it a truly hilarious and brilliant readMurray was a humble shoemaker who spent most of his days making shoes for the villagers But one night a large fairy suddenly comes to his house and begs him to make her a special pair of shoes for a certain maiden since her wand had ran out of powers Murray then gives the fairy a pair of glass slippers and the fairy promises to reward him whenever she gets her magic back But the next day Mona Murray’s clerk and the woman he secretly loves comes rushing inside his shoe shop and tells him about the prince trying to find the maiden whose foot can fit into the glass slipper that she left behind And when Murray tells Mona that he was the one who made the glass slippers Mona then begs him to make her a pair of glass slippers so that she can use them to present to the prince and marry him Murray who is actually crushed by this scheme sadly makes Mona a pair of glass slippers and Mona goes to the prince to show him the glass slippers Will Mona marry the prince and will Murray lose the love of his lifeRead this book to find out Wowjust wow I never would have expected to enjoy this book as much as I did Deborah Guarino’s writing is both hilarious and heartwarming and I really enjoyed this interesting twist on the “Cinderella” tale I really loved Murray as a character as he was both hilarious and engaging and I really felt for him when he wanted to win Mona’s heart despite Mona wanting to marry the Prince I also loved how it was Murray who created the glass slippers for Cinderella since we get to see another character in this story that was not Cinderella I also loved the twist of the story of how Mona wanted Murray to make the glass slippers for her and how the prince had nearly married the wrong woman Seth Hippen’s artwork was truly hilarious to look at as most of the characters are drawn in exaggerated ways especially the large fairy who takes up most of the pages that she’s inOverall “If the Shoe Fits” is a truly hilarious and imaginative story that takes the “Cinderella” mythos and twists it in a truly creative way I would recommend this book to children ages five and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this bookReview is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog

Disclaimer ARC via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review Cinderella might be the most popular fairy tale in the world It seems as if each culture has its own version there are the off shoots such as Coat of Many Furs there are movies and movies the character appears in I don’t know how many books There is even a short novel told from the viewpoint of one the transformed rats So do we really need another Cinderella story Well we do need If the Shoe Fits so it’s a yes This short children’s book focuses on the shoemaker who created those glass slippers The fairy godmother turns to him because her magic is temporally depleted You try creating a dress coach horses and entourage without getting tired What then enfolds is actually a story about what love really is The shoemaker Murray is caught between what the love of his life truly desires and what he wants – to marry the love of his life That is really what this child’s book is about what love is The thing about some Cinderella stories the Disney cartoon in particular is the uestion about love – would you want your daughter to marry some dude she dances with just once And before everyone starts with the “but it is a fairy tale and it means” I know Okay But in the hands of Guarino and Hippen love takes center stage Murray is totally motivated by love; the choices he makes are based on his love for Mona who really wants to marry a prince It really is a wonderful story about what love means Hippen’s illustrations are the right balance of whimsey and realism It’s sweet
