Collins Big Cat - After the Ball: Band 11+/Lime Plus

Paperback

Cinderella has got her prince, but what happens to the stepsisters after the ball?

Lettice and Hilda are angry that they’ve been labelled as the villains of Cinderella's story, so they decide to be the best villains they can. They open Baddies-for-Hire, an employment agency for the villains of Storyville. People will pay the sisters to send out their workers to do villainous work. But after a taste of their own medicine, the sisters have a change of heart. Will Cinderella accept that her stepsisters can really be good?

Lime Plus/Band 11+ books provide challenging plots and vocabulary as well as opportunities to practise inference, prediction and reading stamina.

Jan Burchett and Sara Vogler, Illustrated by Seb Burnett, Prepared for publication by Collins Big Cat

The authors, Jan and Sara, have written more than 200 stories – and love writing for Collins Big Cat. They wanted to write After the Ball because they wondered what happened to Cinderella’s step-sisters and other fairy-tale villains when their stories were over. They also wanted to challenge the idea of ‘once a villain, always a villain’. People can change.
