Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lilliam Oliva Collmann
The Spanish/English bilingual adaptation of this classic fairy tale goes straight to the point! The author sticks to the plot with simple sentences, yet it preserves the magic of a "once upon a time" tale. We have a prince who is on a mission to find a real princess. He looks all over the world for her, but all the ladies he meets have flaws. Until one rainy night a princess knocks on the palace door, and is invited to spend the night. The queen, who is clearly in charge, makes her bed, putting a pea under twenty mattresses and twenty comforters to test if she is a real princess. The next morning the princess honestly reports she did not sleep well the night before. The queen and king rejoice for only a real princess would have skin fine enough to feel a pea under 20 mattresses. The humorous and updated illustrations complement the bare bones narration in Spanish and English. The prince travels the world alone looking for his real princess in an antique Ford-style convertible, no horse, no royal entourage. As he waves goodbye to his parents, who are standing in front of the "royal" palace, you can see a line of laundry drying in the sun. The ladies he meets are certainly not "real" princesses: one reveals her cleats, the other hides a fishing line behind her back, while a third is mesmerized by her own watering can. It is a charming and accessible picture book for a kindergarten to second grade reader or listener, belonging to a bilingual collection of classic fairy tales published by Scholastic.
