Product Description

Princess Pigtoria and the Pea Princess Pigtoria's palace was a pigsty and she was penniless. Perhaps, if the prince proposed, she could make her palace picturesque again. If only Prince Proudfoot wasn't such a pompous porker. A pretty new princess-and-the-pea picture book for little people who love preposterous play with the letter P!

4.0 out of 5 stars Princess Pigtoria and the Pea 12 April 2010
By Tami Brady TOP 500 REVIEWER
Princess Pigtoria is in trouble. Her palace is in dire need of some maintenance but she can't do the work herself. Then, she sees an advertisement from a prince looking for a princess to marry. Pigtoria decides this might be the answer to her predicament.

Of course, we know from the Princess and the Pea that the only way to tell a real princess is the "pea test". Well, Pigtoria experiences her own version of this test. She does so, in very typical Pigtoria style.

A cute story, a little lesson for us all, and the most P words I've ever read in one place.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting angle on the Princess and the Pea 5 Mar 2010
By Ulyyf - Published on Amazon.com
We had a school book fair today, and I got to attend (twice!) with my two nieces. Don't ask me how much I spent, it's a little blush-worthy.

I had already vetoed several books my older niece picked out (no TV books, no sticker books, no poster books, and no toys which aren't EVEN books!) so even though I wasn't feeling very hopeful about this one (The Princess and the Pea has always been among my least-favorite fairy tales) I smiled and burst out with a happy "Sure, why not!" about it.

I was pleasantly surprised when I got this book home and had a chance to look at it. This is a very alliterative book (lots of use of the letter P) about impoverished Princess Pigtoria, who thought she might hit it off with the Prince and fix up her falling down castle.

He's a bit of an ass, actually, and when she finds out about the pea trick she does what I've always wanted the sappy princess to do in this story - reads him the riot act and dumps him from the pizza boy! So she and the pizza boy get rich selling pizza, and the prince eventually marries the parlor maid and becomes a reformed citizen.

Okay, so it's sillier than it needs to be and the moral is a little hamfisted. (Pun intentional, of course.) It's still better than I thought.

A cute book with a focus on words beginning with p. I would give it 5 stars, but they never show you what that SPOILERS!!! chicken-pig baby looks like in the end.
5.0 out of 5 stars Let's Hear It for for a Practical Princess 31 Oct 2013
By Lois-ellin Datta - Published on Amazon.com
"Princess Pigtoria and the Pea" is a really funny book. The words are funny, the sentences are funny, the situation is funny, and the illustrations get right in the spirit.

A poverty stricken Princess answers an advertisement placed by Prince Proudfoot, who while healthy & wealthy, isn't too wise. He is a boor, in fact, & when Pigtoria finds out about the pea trick, Proudfoot gets what he deserves. Right on, Pigtoria, and we're glad you are living happily every after with the Pizza Delivery Pig. (NO peppersoni!).

The story tumbles all over itself with "p" alliteration. When the "P's" pale, the story can be retold just splendidly with an "s" (for "swine") or whatever letter the lucky young'uns to whom you may be reading will choose.

Any negatives? A few. Pigtoria is a tad materialistic and not necessarily an ideal guest even if she is visiting a castle with servants galore. Proudfoot doesn't get a chance to explain his rationale for bride-selection. And one pea seems frugal fare for four mice.

For me, however, these are not show-stoppers; they just add more paths to talking about the story. At low used book prices, some readers may be pleased indeed to find yet another support for helping young ladies have high self-respect and young gentlemen to become less like Georgie Porgy and more pleasant people---highly recommended.
