Based on the real Cinderella Rueckert, a colorful character who lived in a yellow house in Mendocino in the 1890s, this charming book takes the reader on a fantastical journey through Mendocino’s past. In human and mermaid forms, Cinderella collects seaweed, rides whales, and makes art. The gorgeous full-color drawings bring to life author Gary Starr’s magical tale.
