''Prince Cinders'' is a 1987 book by British children’s author BabetteCole.

In this FracturedFairyTale retelling of Literature/{{Cinderella}}, Prince Cinders leads a hard life, bullied by his three big hairy brothers who leave him to do the cleaning while they head off to the Palace Disco with their glamorous princess girlfriends. Then one Saturday night a small, very dirty fairy arrives on the scene, promising that all his wishes will come true. But unfortunately for Prince Cinders, not all the fairy's spells turn out exactly as planned...

It received an AnimatedAdaptation in 1993.

!!Examples:
* AscendedExtra: Princess Lovelypenny. In the book, she only meets Cinders briefly before he turns back into a human, whereas in the AnimatedAdaptation, the disco Cinders wishes to attend is stated to be for her specifically, and she and Cinders spend some time talking to each other before he returns to normal.
* BigBrotherBully: Cinders' brothers. More so in the AnimatedAdaptation.
* FairyGodmother: An inept one.
* FracturedFairyTale
* GenderFlip: Of Cinderella, naturally.
* IneptMage: The fairy.
* RescueRomance: Well, Lovelypenny THINKS that Cinders rescued her from the ape.
* TalkingAnimal: Zipper the cat becomes this in the AnimatedAdaptation, thanks to the fairy.
* [[TheGirlWhoFitsThisSlipper The Man Who Fits These Trousers]]
* TheHerosBirthday: Most of the story takes place on the night of Cinders' birthday.
* WhenTheClockStrikesTwelve
