“Several years ago,” explained author Mark Binder. “I was telling stories in Newport at a camp for kids with handicaps, and that same summer I was up in Boston sharing stories with inner-city young people. What story could connect these urban and handicapped listeners? How about Cinderella, but with a spin…? The story was familiar, but had a nice urban grit to it. And over the years, I was always impressed that it never mattered to listeners that Cinderella was in a wheel chair!”

Nothing gets her down. She keeps a smile on her face and a smile in her heart, and when she finally meets her prince it is on her own terms. Mark Binder is an author who knows how to tell the right story for any age. His award-winning books and audio albums include, “The Bed Time Story Book”, “Classic Stories for Boys and Girls” and “It Ate My Sister.” Steve Mardo is a newcomer to ebook illustration—but his drawings of Cinderella, the Prince, Fairy Godmother and of course the Stepsisters are sure to bring smiles and laugher.

I am a teacher at St.Mary’s Home for children and I have a girl who can write and draw above average. I would like to show you some of her work as it is unbelievable. CAn I make arrangements as I fell very strongly that this girl needs to be heard.
Thank you,
Marie Campbell Special Education teacher

Hi Ms. Campbell,
Thanks so much for contacting us.
I know that Mark has been in touch with you about the possibility of doing a presentation for your program.
We don’t look at unsolicited work at this time.
I hope this isn’t too disappointing.
