    One thought on “Cinderella: An Art Deco Love Story”

    1. Cinderella, An Art Deco Love Story, by Lynn Roberts is a retelling of the Cinderella story in the 1920-30 Art Deco time period. In this version of the fairytale, Cinderella’s father is a “quite forgetful and could not see anything at all without his glasses.” As a result, he returns home two weeks late from a business trip with a woman whose “beauty was such that it could only be recognized by a few (particularly those who had lost their glasses).” This is a cleverly written and illust [...]

    2. This retelling of the classic story of Cinderella is quite unique and is set in the Art Deco time period of the 1930’s. The unique changes in this retelling and the attention to detail throughout the story including hearing about the ball on the radio, riding to the ball in a fashionable car, and mention of Clarice Cliff coffee cups, and paintings by Augustus John and Tamara de Lempicka make this retelling very interesting, accurate, and fun. This retelling of the classic Cinderella story may [...]

    3. light retelling of Cinderella with a few fillips like her incredibly absent-minded father. Art is functional and amusing.

    4. Cinderella, An Art Deco Love Story was quite an interesting take on the classic. Retold by Lynn Roberts and Illustrated by Favid Roberts, the story was set in the roaring 1920's. The illustrations were glitzy, colorful, and detailed. The furniture, vehicles, and clothing were magically illustrated to represent the Art Deco time period. It was fantastic that Cinderella was wearing a flapper dress! Lynn Roberts did make some changes to this version of Cinderella, which could be fun for children to [...]

    5. The father is absent minded and blind w/out glasses, and that's his excuse for seeing his daughter sleep in rags in the kitchen and do all the housework? The fairy godmother is random. There's no explanation for the insta-love. Cinderella keeps the insulting nickname. The pictures are ugly (almost spoiling my impression of the loveliness that was the Art Deco movement). Stupid and unnecessary addition to the pantheon of so many books that are so much better. (Well, kinda the base story itself is [...]

    6. Title: Cinderella An Art Deco Love Story Author: Lynn RobertsIllustrator: David RobertsGenre: European FolktaleTheme(s): family, wealth, unfairness, animals, and fairytaleOpening line/sentence: “In a time not too long ago and in a land much like our own, there lived a young and beautiful girl.”Brief Book Summary: Cinderella’s single father goes to the city and returns with a nasty, evil stepmother and stepsisters for Cinderella. The king is having a ball for the prince to find his princess [...]

    7. This story has a bit of a different twist. At the beginning, the story starts out talking about a girl who lived with her father because the mother had passed away. He goes off to a meeting and comes back married. The woman he marries is mean and so are the daughters. She has nice things but the stepmother decides that she needs to give it all to her daughters. She is snotty and rude. She tells her to go find somewhere else in the house to live because her daughters need her room. You feel so so [...]

    8. This retelling of Cinderella is absolutely fabulous. The story is set during the Art Deco period in the USA and pays close attention to the detail of the time period. The dust jacket points out that the illustrator included Clarice Cliff coffee cups, paintings by Augustus John and Tamara de Lempicka and instead of a carriage she rides off to the ball in a white Rolls Royce!The story begins with Greta enjoying life with her eccentric father who can't see without his glasses. When he goes in town [...]

    9. In the book, Cinderella: An Art Deco Love Story, Greta lives at home with her father, who after a two week trip comes back with a new wife and two daughters. Her new wicked stepmother takes Greta’s belongings and kicks her out of her bedroom and forces her to sleep in the kitchen. She eventually is nicknamed Cinderella because she is always covered with cinders and dust. While cleaning the house, Greta hears an announcement for a royal ball on the radio. Her two stepsisters make sure Cinderell [...]

    10. We recently read Rapunzel: A Groovy Fairy Tale by the sister/brother team of Lynn Roberts and David Roberts. It was an interesting, modern take on a classic fairy tale. When I wrote the review for that book, I discovered that this author/illustrator pair wrote more books like this. We definitely wanted to check them out as well.This book was a fun take on the Cinderella story, set in the 1930s. I liked the story and I loved the illustrations, but I didn't have the same kind of nostalgic reaction [...]

    11. A slight twist on Cinderella set in the 1930s with Greta and Roderick, Elvira and Ermintrude. Fantastic illustrations! The story is good, fun (glow worms!) but the shine comes from David Robert whose pen illustrations prove he delights in details. "Flapper fashions and a posh, Gatsby-esque mansion[where] Cinderella sports a blond bob and has kohl-rimmed eyes."*Great fun. Perhaps it'll find more fans in adults than kids, although the draw is there. This is a book meant to be read one-on-one not d [...]

    12. Cinderella has been moved to the 1930s in this lovely reimagining of the fairy tale.The fashion is bright and flashy and the announcement of the ball is made over the radio. It's the time in which Art Deco shines everywhere. Greta, though she is called Cinderella by her stepmother and stepsister, is now doing everyone's laundry and fetching clothes for her new stepsisters. After finding out about the ball, Cinderella is upset to find that she can't go. Until she receives a special visit.Grade: K [...]

    13. Bought this book together with Bound (Donna Jo Napoli) and Godmother: The Secret Cinderella Story (Carolyn Turgeon) for comparison purpose. They are all versions/variants/adaptations of the Cinderella story. The stars are for the wonderful, well-researched, fashionable illustration. The story itself, of course, is the classic rags-to-riches fairy tale every child knows and most grown-up dream about. ;-)

    14. This is a really cool adaptation of the classic fairy tale, Cinderella. However, this story is set in the 20's or 30's and Cinderella's father doesn't die, he is just kind of oblivious to what is going on. The stepmother is just as mean as ever and in the end Cinderella still gets the Prince. The illustrations are a beautiful depiciton of the Art Deco period. This book is appropriate for students in grades K-3.

    16. Every line of the art in this book is inspiring. Why should little princesses only dream about medieval gowns? Why not the beautiful vintage couture of the Turbulent Thirties? Awesome detail on every page. The story has great British humor and several twists both retro-inspired and with modern sensibility. Clever and amusing.

    17. David Roberts. Always a treat. Love that he wrote in the back about his approach and what influenced his take on Cinderella. Wish all illustrators and authors would do this in picture books. The expressiveness of the characters' faces and bodies in this is exceptional. The treatment of the garments and fabrics astounding. Worth a look.

    18. An "art deco" style picture book version of a classic fairytale! This one has a long sleek roadster instead of a golden coach, and Cinderella and her sisters wear sassy Flapper outfits instead of the typical finery seen in most other versions of this tale. The artwork is very good indeed, and supremely humorous. A fun re-telling of the story everyone knows.

    19. I LOVE this version! The retelling - set in the flapper era - is brillant and the illustrations are hilarious. Love it!Also, this version has the classic set of evil step sister and silly step sister - and the look on teh sily step sister's face when the royal ball invite comes never fails to Crack. Me. Up.

    20. I love the 1930s, so the Art Deco styling of this retelling was a lot of fun to explore. Add sprightly storytelling and illustrations with plenty of clever detail, and I have to say Cinderella: An Art Deco Love Story is one of the best versions of Cinderella I've read.

    21. This was so much fun! I read it to one girl, and immediately had an audience swarmed around me. The art is fun, and definitely gets kids thinking about what different time periods might have looked like. The wee ones really liked this!

    22. Read this a couple of weeks ago, but forgot to put it here.Loooove this adaptation of this tale. Gorgeous, I mean, fantastic illustrations!The roaring 20s/Art Déco twist on it is spectacular.Totally worth having in your fairytales collection!

    23. I'm a big fan of the illustrations! These 1920s and 1930s-inspired drawings are very unique, interesting, and fun. I'm not a big fan of the retelling in this case, though, since it is too cliche to be anything special.

    24. Really fun Cinderella, with great details (the brussels sprout that turns into a limo, the radio that announces the ball, the shingled hair styles). One sister is a wicked vamp, the other a vapid flapper, and the old, old tale comes alive in a new way.

    25. The retelling wasn't anything special, and the illustrations aren't in a style I care for, but I did very much appreciate all the period detail.

    26. This is worth picking up from the library if only because of how they put together Cinderella's ride to the ball. Fun illustrations!
