Dixie Phillips is back with another engaging children’s picture book from Guardian Angel Publishing. Cinderfella and the Furry Godmother is the story of Staci, a little girl who is thrilled to receive a new puppy for her birthday. Staci’s job is to fill Little Fella’s water dish each day, but one day she forgets and she and her daddy decide they must come up with a way for her to remember.
In this delightful new release, Phillips shows why her work has won awards. A wonderful sense of imagination, an engaging storyline, and a dose of fun are combined to create a story that will help young readers remember how important it is to take care of their pets. That this topic is handled in a light and unique way makes Cinderfella and the Furry Godmother a book that youngsters will enjoy and want to read often.
Artist Samantha Bell has outdone herself with these beautiful illustrations in soft, warm tones. I swear I could almost hear the slurp of Little Fella’s lick to Staci’s cheek. I think my favorite must be the picture of Daddy all dressed up to make his announcement.
I’ve read many of Phillips’ stories. While she has departed from her Christian fiction for this one, her fans definitely won’t be disappointed. This would be a nice gift for a veterinarian’s office or for a family with young kids who have welcomed a new puppy into their home.
I’m eager to see what Dixie Phillips comes up with next!
