Cinders and Sparks: Magic at Midnight

A magic girl.
A talking dog.
Let's get this party started . . .

Cinders lives a boring life with her selfish stepsisters and mean stepmother. So when her wishes start magically coming true it's a surprise to say the least.

Then Cinders meets her fairy godmother: she's magic, she can fly, and she's called . . . Brian.

Soon, Cinders finds herself heading to the glamorous ball at the King's palace. But Brian is NOT very reliable and Cinders is NOT very good at magic. Now her life isn't boring at all - it's total chaos!
