Lindsey C. Craig wrote the first "Cinderella's Shakespeare" for her daughters who were bored one hot summer afternoon. The children (and neighbors) had so much fun acting the play, that Lindsey created a longer version, the "Cinderella's Shakespeare" you now hopefully have in your hands, published by Eldridge Publishing Company. Lindsey lives with her family (and cats and dogs and birds) on a small island in Washington State. She also writes children's stories and has two new books, "Dancing Feet!" and "Barnyard Beat!" both published by Alfred A. Knopf Books.
