Scissorella : The Paper Princess, Hardback Book

Scissorella : The Paper Princess Hardback

Illustrated by Laura Barrett



Cinderella meets paper-cutting, with a strong feminist twist, based on the life and work of German film director Lotte Reiniger. Lotte doesn't believe in happy endings. She lives with her horrible, bossy sisters and her only friends are the exquisite cut-out paper puppets she makes by the light of the moon.

But when an invitation to the Palace Spring Ball arrives on their doorstep, Lotte sees her chance to change her life for ever... Cinderella with a difference where forceful individuality and talent create happy endings not fairy tale magic.
