Diamante's favourite book is CINDERELLA because she would like to be like the fairy godmother and turn things into other things!
So she decides that she will start with her dog, Ruff and turn her into a human! And Ruff learns quickly - she learns to eat daintily, how to hold a cup and saucer and cross her legs. And as a human, Rufferella become famous for having the most wonderful singing voice, which soon brings her to the attention of the Queen who demands a royal performance.
When the big night comes Rufferella just can't resist the temptation of sausages and her true nature wins out!
Poor Rufferella, will this mean terrible shame - or perhaps a dog should be a dog! A wonderful and witty reinterpretation of the classic fairy-tale brought right up to date for contemporary children.
