Cinderella’s Fella by Aislinn O’Loughlin

The preparations get under way immediately with Fred’s stepmom Queen Sandra donning her apron and returning to the kitchen to help out. After all Sandra was a kitchen girl by birth! Fred advises his young twin sisters not to believe in those stupid bedtime fairy stories where beautiful girls appear out of the blue, win the prince’s heart and live happily ever after, which is in fact just what he ends up doing himself.
