The famous fairy tale The Princess and the Pea is retold in this all-new Little Golden Book--destined to be an instant classic!
Children's Literature - Heather WelshHans Christian Andersen's story of a prince in search of his true princess comes to life in the beautifully illustrated pages of this "Little Golden Book." This story is a lesson in "not judging a book by its cover." As the prince journeys around the globe in search of his true love, he finds that simply dressing nicely and calling yourself a princess does necessarily make you kind. He encounters messy princesses, rude princesses, loud princesses, and unfriendly princesses. None of them feel like quite right fit as the future queen of the kingdom. After all, a princess is to be proper and delicate. After searching the world over for such a gentle lady, the poor prince returns home without an acceptable princess at his side. He gives up looking for a bride. Then, one stormy night, a princess comes to the door, seeking shelter from the storm. She looks nothing like the others. She is not dressed especially nice, and she is travelinguncustomarilyalone in the middle of the night. The prince's mother knows that a true princess can be identified by her delicate frame. The test is a single pea placed under twenty mattresses and twenty feather beds. Is the girl truly a princess despite her rugged appearance? Or will she be sent packing like the rest? The durable covers of this board book will help keep it fresh to share with generations to come. The illustrations take up most of each page and allow readers to infer text meaning.
