In this modern take on the Princess and the Pea, Prince Henrik decides that sometimes real princesses can be too sensitive!
Prince Henrik wants to marry an outdoorsy kind of girl, so instead of a single pea tucked into a pile of bedding, Henrik tests prospective brides with an entire packet of frozen peas shoved under a flimsy camping mattress. Henrik despairs as princess after princess complains, until one day the just-right girl shows up unexpectedly in the form of his old friend, Pippa. Pippa is all too happy to join Henrik in pitching a tent or playing a hard game of hockey, after which she finds the perfect use for that packet of frozen peas!
In this remix of the fairy tale, Tony Wilson and Sue deGennaro deliver a freshly humorous take on one prince's search for the girl of his dreams.

Review quote

"Relying on pattern, line and pale colors, the naively stylized pencil, gouache and collage illustrations subvert proportions and perspectives, adding to the whimsical tenor of this droll tale of a savvy prince who finds the perfect partner. A must for would-be princesses."
