Product description


'Children love fairy stories. They suspend disbelief and accept all manner of strange happenings as perfectly normal. How many people would feel a pea under their mattress? Probably none, but that doesn t stop children enjoying the story of the Princess and the Pea. The Real Princess: A Mathemagical Tale...has a lovely mathematical slant on this traditional tale. Use the story for counting, sequences, ordinal numbers and much more.' --Scholastic Child Education PLUS

'This is the first non-rhyming children s story that Brenda has had published, and it s a real treasure of a book. It offers a fresh slant on the well-known traditional tale The Princess and the Pea and young readers will love getting involved with the story and trying some mathemagical counting along the way.' --Scholastic Literacy Plus

'Complimented by the bright imaginative illustrations by Fatus, this is an excellent way to introduce counting and numeracy skills. Overall, it is a nice story with fun, bold illustrations and should captivate any young listener.' --Elizabeth Baskeyfield, The School Librarian
