If there's a single factor the standard fairy-tale Cinderella is lacking, it's some rip-snortin', gravel-in-the-gizzard gumption. And until her Wild West counterpart, Cindy Ellen, meets her personal fairy godmother, she too is sorely deficient inside the grit and guts department, even if she is really a durn good cowgirl."And just like that, Cindy is outfitted inside the"finest riding clothes west of the East,"such as a pair of diamond-studded spurs. Cindy Ellen's meaner-than-a-rattlesnake stepmother bullies her into doing all the dirty execute on the ranch and forbids her to attend the biggest event in the season, a rodeo and square dance. Enter her spur-jangling, gun-firing, no-nonsense fairy godmother:"Magic is plumb worthless without having gumption. Stop that tomfool blubbering, and let's get busy. It involves six cactus mice transformed into six dappled horses, a lost diamond spur, together with a rodeo champion by the name of Joe Prince. You can guess the rest.

Simply put, Cindy Ellen is a riot. Susan Lowell has enchanted readers with several earlier Wild West remakes, including The Bootmaker and the Elves and The Three Little Javelinas. Joined with Jane Manning's over-the-top illustrations, this sidesplitting retelling of a classic will keep young buckaroos in stitches. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
