Hi kids! Are you ready for Chapter Two of Cinderella?
I sure am!
At the end of Chapter One, Cinderella had just been banished to live in the barn by her mean stepmother!
Let’s see what happens next!
Life in the barn wasn’t so bad! Cinderella had made a nice little room for herself!
Being that much closer to the rooster meant I never overslept!
And it sure was convenient being able to just roll over and start my chores!
But I missed my old life. Especially my dad!
It seemed like he had been gone on his fishing trip for FOREVER!
Then I heard the awful news!
Extra, extra! Awful news! Read all about it! Local dad captured by pirates!
Yep, my dad had been captured by a gang of pirates!
And to make matters worse, my stepmother and stepsisters didn’t even seem to care!
He’ll be fine.
I can’t worry. It gives me wrinkles.
Ugh! They were the worst!
Fine! I’LL go find him!
Don’t be ridiculous! You have to stay here and take care of us.
No way! I’m gonna find him, and fight the pirates!
I’ll hire a search party. They’ll find him and bring him home.
But like really really?
Really really really! Gosh!
Um, can we stop talking about pirates and like get some breakfast?
Cinder-really! He he he!
With my dad gone so long, things went from very bad to way worse.
My stepmother decided that it was time for my stepsisters to get married.
And of course, I had to help.
There were etiquette lessons.
The most difficult task was teaching them how to be...not terrible.
Would you like to go for a walk?
Um, like, you don’t have a carriage?
Okay, sooo, maybe don’t yell so much?
It was beginning to feel pretty useless. My stepsisters were just big ol’ meanies.
Meanwhile, my dad was still out there somewhere with a crusty gang of pirates.
Actually...that doesn’t sound so bad compared to these guys.
Good thing I still have you guys.
Goodnight, Sir Bonkers,
Goodnight to you, Squeakers, Pip, and Puff-puff!
Goodnight, Mr. Rooster!
Shh! Save it for the morning!
That night, I had a beautiful dream!
My dad was home, safe and sound!
My Stepmother and Gritzel and Unga were nowhere in sight!
Amazing! I was all dressed up! No more rags!
And I had the prettiest slippers...it’s almost as if they were made of glass!
[Gasps] What’s all that racket?
Why didn’t you wake me, Mr. Rooster?
We must get to work immediately!
This is so exciting!
What’s going on?
The Queen is having a ball and we’re all invited!
Whoa! I just had a dream that I was dressed up in a beautiful gown!
Just like I was going to a royal ball. So funny!
That IS funny. You, in a gown?
Get it? Because you wear rags!
Yeah... I get it...
Whatever. They're rude. I was used to it, but a royal ball?
Now this was exciting!
What do YOU think kids? Will Cinderella get to go to the royal ball?
Will her father get rescued from the pirate gang?
I can't wait to find out. Chapter 3 is coming soon!
