Paperback / Softback




The first in a funny, deliciously dark, three-part series of twisted classics, written in verse by award-winning poet Joseph Coelho and illustrated by Freya Hartas.

“Such a fun story with excellent illustrations … with enough familiarity to feel known but with enough difference to make it quirky and original” Malorie Blackman

A yellow moon hangs in a satin sky the night Cinderella, barefoot and in hand-me-downs, slips at the top of the stairs … and dies. But not for long. The Shadow of Death arrives to breathe life back into her bones and, for three nights only, Cinderella goes forth as ZOMBIERELLA. With her skin as cold as ice and her faithful horse Lumpkin back by her side, can she seek revenge on her three cruel, fake sisters, once and for all?

Crawl out of the grave and step into your mushroom carriage for this haunting and humorous adventure of the undead girl searching for her happily ever after.

Publisher Review

I liked it because it was fascinating and had really cool drawings. The characters were great, especially the 3 fake sisters.’ Words of my 7 year old RELUCTANT reader who wouldn’t put this book down and read it in one sitting! Amazing! It’s a fantastic book. * Toppsta * My daughter really enjoyed this book and read it as soon as it arrived. it’s got lots of illustrations so great for reluctant readers making the transition from picture to chapter books. * Toppsta * This book is glorious! The pages are glossy and each one is beautifully illustrated. * Toppsta * I think this book was great!!it was scary so it might frighten little children but it was super exiting and I loved even though it was frightening in some bits. My favorite characters are the three fake sisters. * Toppsta * Featured in The Bookseller’s September Previews. — Fiona Noble * The Bookseller *
