The Disney version of Cinderella was on cable a couple of weeks ago and I watched it. It has some of my favorite Disney songs. This was much different. Not bad different just not the happy, happy, Disney version. I did like the book, but let me say I was a very high string kid, and if I would have read this back then it was have caused a major freak out. As an adult it wasn't too much to handle though. my recommendation is for adults and Colden made of sterner stuff.
