Cinderella Jump Rope Rhymes are here!

give me a call
When I was in middle school, at recess girls still played jump rope games, and these involved rhymes like this one:



Cinderella, dressed in yella
Went downstairs to kiss her fella
By mistake she kissed a snake
How many doctors did it take?
One, Two, Three, Four...


Some time ago, cucumberseed started riffing on this rhyme on his LJ. Lots of other people joined in. Soon we had a collection of bizarre, macabre rhymes for Cinderella. They seemed too good not to share with a wider audience. .... Enter publisher extraordinaire Erzebet Yellowboy of Papaveria Press and the magnificent artist Adam Oelhers, and the result is

Cinderella Jump Rope Rhymes



The booklet is being offered for sale through Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, and The Book Depository. Proceeds will be used to support Cabinet des Fées and charities of its choice (the link on the booklet's title lists the charities).

If you like the artwork, check out my interview with Adam, here. He is an amazing artist: Here, for instance, is Cinderella fighting off robots with her blast attack:



Come one, come all! Enjoy the creepy fun!

He's got a great style--very Rackham/Froud-esque.

Watch me complain about either of those things!

[Would help if I could spell, though.]
