Author Elizabeth Cody Kimmel has updated the classic Cinderella fairy tale to appeal to today's boys and girls. The traditional story is intact with the cruel stepmother, mean stepsisters, and kindly godmother coming magically to life on the screen while Cinderella captures the heart of the young prince and falls in love. The app is highly interactive with hidden sound effects, orchestrated music, and animated enhancements. The multilayered approach to this app allows children of any age to find the level of entertainment within the app appropriate to their own age and interest. Above all, it is a fun app that can be enjoyed by the whole family.
