Book Review #760
Cinderella Skeleton by Robert D. San Souci, illustrated by David Catrow
Rating: two stars (out of four)

This book is a cross between Tim Burton's two films 'The Corpse Bride' and 'Nightmare Before Christmas' mixed with the generic Cinderella story.  It is a very odd mixture.  There were some things that I thought were a little too creepy, and some things that almost made me smirk.  Still, this book was just a little to0 off for my tastes.  I would be wary of recommending it to young children.  The illustrations do their fair share of portraying the story and might frighten some kids.
