Fun retelling of a classic
on 13 April 2011
This version of The Princess and the Pea is a lot of fun, with witty text and ideas and playful illustrations (the pea theme wanders throughout the pages so that it even appears at breakfast!). The flaps are a laugh, too - I won't reveal them here as some of them are a real joy to discover the first time. For the most part, the story follows the traditional tale although the prince and princess don't marry at the end - they simply become very good friends and have a wonderful time playing together.
My two-year old daughter loves this book and will sit and "read" the story to herself over and over. It's also a favourite choice for her older cousins to read to her.
