About the Author

Jewel Kats, 32, is an award-winning writer. She's also one tough cookie. At the age of nine, Jewel endured a car accident. Her physical abilities altered forever. She spent weeks in the Hospital for Sick Children recovering, has survived eight leg surgeries, and currently walks with a cane. (Note: It's fashionably handpainted!) Nothing stops Jewel. For six years, she penned a syndicated teen advice column for Scripps-Howard News Service and TorStar Syndication Services. Jewel has earned $20,000 in scholarships from Global Television Network and Harlequin Enterprises Ltd. She's penned three children's books, including: "Reena's Bollywood Dream" and "What Do You Use to Help Your Body?" This fairytale took her five years to write. It's just that special! Jewel is now working on a movie screenplay. She calls Toronto home.

Reviews

"An inspiring and exciting read for children of all ages and abilities. Finally here is a book which shows that wheelchair-mobile children can achieve anything. A clever, modern twist on this traditional and much loved story."
--Joanne Smith, TV Producer, Terry Fox Hall of Fame inductee, Gemini Award winner"This strength-based present day Cinderella story reminds readers that everyone, including someone with a physical challenge, can have the experiences and relationships they hope to have. This Cinderella found that 'success was of her own making'. A must have for every school library and therapy office."
--Theresa Fraser, M.A., Child Psychotherapist and Play Therapist, author of: Billy Had To Move"A wonderful, upbeat, modernized version of a familiar fairy tale. Cinderella's physical disability is taken in stride, and life goes on regardless. I loved it!"
--Dr. Laurie Zelinger, Child Psychologist, author Please Explain Anxiety to Me"A magnificent modern-day Cinderella story teaching children of all ages--about creating one's own success, happiness, and positive self-image while embracing life's challenges."
--Sherry Jones Mayo, RN, EMTP, NCCN, author Confessions of a Trauma Junkie"Why I liked this book - I really like that this book re-tells the Cinderella story but with a modern twist and Cinderella happens to be in a wheelchair. I like how this book takes place in modern times and uses more modern language in the text. It makes is fun to read. I think this book will be great for all kids, not just disabled, to read about. I think it will make being in a wheelchair seem not so different to kids who aren't. I really like the happy ending. It made me smile. I think this book should be in every house and classroom."
-- This Kid Reviews Books"At the age of nine, Jewel Kat endured a car accident which altered her physical abilities forever. After weeks in the hospital and eight leg surgeries, she currently walks with a cane, which is fashionably handpainted, but nothing stops her. Like Jewel, this Cinderella learns to work hard at making her own 'they lived happily ever after' ending to the story. Illustrator Richa Kinra's eye-catching painted work is primarily in water colors, acrylics, and oils, but sometimes incorporates colored pencil, dry colors, pen and ink, or collage. This is a cute and heart-warming tale that will appeal to everyone, especially children with disabilities who now have a Cinderella with whom they can relate."
-- Wayne S. Walker, The Homeschool Book Review"There is nothing like having a fresh take on a story that you feel as though you know so well. That is exactly what Jewel Kats has done with her book CINDERELLA'S MAGICAL WHEELCHAIR. We are presented with a Cinderella that is not only dealing with special needs but unappreciated for what she has to offer. When an opportunity arises to meet a Prince, Cinderella is tricked into thinking that she will be able to attend the costume party being held by the royal family, but that is not to be. Magically, a special helper comes to help Cinderella not only make it to the party but see something special about herself as well. Jewel Kats has definitely given readers a special Cinderella that is easy to relate to and teaches us the importance of believing in ourselves. You can't ask for any more than that."
--Cyrus Webb, Conversations LIVE!
