9780746070147: Princess the Pea (Young Reading Level 1)

The prince is looking for a true princess to be his wife, but all the girls he meets are too rude, too vain, or too greedy. One stormy night a young woman knocks on the palace door claiming to be a princess, so the queen decides to put her to the test. Will she feel the pea underneath the huge pile of mattresses?

This classic fairy tale is wonderfully brought to life by the soft, colorful illustrations of popular illustrator Maja Dusíková.

(Ages 3-6)

About the Author:

Hans Christian Andersen (1805–1875) was a Danish author and poet best known for his fairy tales. Among his most well known stories are "The Snow Queen," "The Little Mermaid," "The Emperor's New Clothes," and "The Ugly Duckling." During Andersen's lifetime, he was feted by Royalty and acclaimed for bringing joy to children throughout Europe. His fairy tales have been translated into more than a hundred languages and continue to be published in millions of copies all over the world.

Review:

'Dusikova's pictures are full of soft edges and soft colours, with pretty architectual details and an assortment of castle denizens, including a pair of cats and a toddler in a jester's motley. A rendering to bring a smile or possibly a giggle.' -- Kirkus Review 'This version of The Princess and the Pea, published by Floris Books, has everything, absolutely everything you could wish for ... The well-known story is told eloquently and magically, with no post modern twists, just classical elegance. But it is Maja Dusikova's illustrations which make this a book sing. Beautiful, graceful, delicate, detailed, soft and luxurious, Dusikova's illustrations have tip-top fairy tale quality. Imagine a rainbow coloured incarnation of Hans Christian Andersen Award winning Lisbeth Zwerger and you'll get some sense of Dusikova's style. An utterly delightful book, I don't know of any more charming version of this tale, traditionally told.' -- playingbythebook.net 'beautifully illustrated, in a gentle and eye-catching style. It is told simply, yet brings the story to life in new ways ... Children will enjoy putting their own words to this story and will be empowered to do so, even if they cannot read, by such humorous, soft and detailed pictures.' -- Early Years Educator 'This is a wonderful version of the well-known tale, illustrated with charm and humour, with images that feel expansive and expressive in their detail.' -- Juno
