I borrowed this book from the public library and we all loved the story and animated pictures. I'm going to buy this for our girls.

Classic story written in a very creative fashion. I love this story in general because it is about love and has a happy ending. I really enjoyed this version because of the creative writing techniques and art work. The illustrations are actual pictures and Lauren Child's usual character drawings. Would be great to show students different types of media and examples of creative writing. A true classic! 1-5

This is Lauren Child's spin on the classic Princess and the Pea story. It would be good to use in a unit of fairy tales and maybe put out all the different versions of this story to see how much they differ.

A great version of the well-known fairytale! The writing is funny and witty-- great for a read aloud! The pictures in this story are very fun as well!

A wonderful retell of an extremely well-known fairytale! The writing and illustrations fit perfectly with the lighthearted message.

One princess goes to a castle and sleeps, but finds one big surprise...she feels something under a lot of blankets and mattresses; but what is it? This fairy tale is recommended for ages second grade and up.

The prince wishes to marry someone out of love. This is fine with the king and queen but their are a few conditions, she must be a princess and she must have manners. The prince agreed to this however, as most fairy tales go a ball was thrown and he traveled to far away lands in search of a princess that was mesmerizing, fascinating and a certain...something. Well, a princess eventually shows up at the castle soaked from head to toe and the queen having manners makes up a bed for her with with several mattresses and a very small pea underneath.Lauren Child and Polly Borland come together to create some amazing pictures for this story. The pictures are actually photography's of miniature doll furniture. Great story to share with a classroom when studying different art medium in stories. The language she uses in this story would also work into a lesson on word use and synonyms.

I *love* Lauren Child's work. This is wordy but really, really fun. I love the application Child's signature art, funky fonts, and witty asides to a classic story. I hope she decides to tackle more....
