A Frilling Time by Nette Hilton

If you like fairy tales you'll like this one. It is a modern day interpretation of the Cinderella story. Ted is a bit disgruntled with his Mum and is looking forward to attending the school dance with his best mate. Suddenly he can't go due to his mum having another commitment so she arranges him a babysitter, but she's no ordinary babysitter. Ted suddenly finds himself wearing dress which he can't get rid of until he breaks the spell. Whatever is he going to do? This story is a quick read and the text is accompanied by quirky illustrations by Craig Smith. Author Nette Hilton has a great website if you want to know more about her and her books. http://www.nettehilton.com.au/
