From the Publisher:
Jan Brett sets her Cinderella story in a snowy Russian winter where one magical night, Cinders, the most picked upon hen in the flock, becomes the most loved by Prince Cockerel when she arrives at his ball looking so beautiful that even her bossy sisters don't recognize her.

Jan travelled to Russia and readers will be in awe of the Ice Palace aglow under a deep blue moonlit sky, exquisite ball gowns on the comely pullets, uniforms with gold braids and buttons on the cockerels, striking Russian architecture transformed into ice in the borders, and a very funny flock of chickens who provide an appealing, original look at this snowy Cinderella. Readers will find these dressed up chickens comical as they pour over the extravagant setting, including a "WOW"-inducing double gatefold of chicken couples whirling around the ballroom. A feast for the eyes sure to become a perennial favorite.
Annotation:
Among a flock of chickens, a pecking order always exists. Cinders is at the bottom of that order. In this story set in a snowy 18th-century Russian landscape, Cinders contends with her nasty sisters, Bossy and Pecky, and their arrogant mother, Largessa. As in all good Cinderella tales, the hens ready themselves for a ball, "a feathered frolic" hosted by Prince Cockeral, who falls for the mysterious (and unrecognizable to her sisters) Cinders. Echoing the winter wonderland in The Three Snow Bears, bestselling author Jan Brett gives this snow an extra northern lights glow, having traveled to Russia to research the architecture and ornate costumes of the period. She uses watercolor and gouache to create a stunning ice palace. The chickens preening across the dance floor dressed in their finest are both elegant and comical. Brett's characteristic border windows dress up and foreshadow the action, giving magical peeks into this enchanted world.
