If the Shoe Fits by Deborah Guarino (Author), Seth Hippen (Illustrator) – Arc Review

Ever wonder what might have happened if a certain glass slipper had been placed on the wrong maiden’s foot . . . and fit?! In this comic twist on a classic fairy tale, Murray, a humble shoemaker, creates a pair of glass slippers for a frantic fairy godmother when her wand runs out of power, setting off a rollicking chain of events that may force him to disappoint a prince, risk the fairy’s wrath, and sacrifice the secret love of his life. Deborah Guarino, author of the bestselling Is Your Mama a Llama?, has created a magical story that will delight readers of all ages. Vivid illustrations bring the characters brilliantly to life in this tale of true love, royal mayhem, and big feet.

If the Shoe FitsIf the Shoe Fits by Deborah Guarino
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a lovely and fresh take on a so well known story. I really enjoyed the new plot twists and how it all came together at the end. It’s quite a short story but that doesn’t mean you enjoy it any less. Apart from the plot, the art reminded me slightly of illustrations of Snow White and the seven dwarfs, which I love. That being said the illustrator does have his own, very unique style that I like. It’s fun, it’s captivating, just like the plot of the story. I’m sure that anyone who reads this book will have at the end a smile on their faces. And that’s what books such as this are meant for. A truly enjoyable read.
