    1 thought on “The Princess and the Pea”

    1. I enjoyed particularly what this artist did to portray this story. It is unique and interesting, the mattresses being portrayed in a fun way as well as the attire of the princess and people. The author portrayed the story in a interesting way that made me realize I didn't know the story as well as I had thought. Its defiantly older than any version I have heard but I enjoyed how it seemed to stick true to what I would think is the original telling of this tale.

    2. There's not really a "moral" to the story, which is find, but you can't really take-away anything good from it. Maybe it was an amusing tale at one point, but it's just antiquated now.

    3. This book surprised me in how short it was. I read it because I did not know the story very well and wanted a reminder of how it goes. I thought that there was a lot more to it. I read it in about a couple minutes and I felt like there was no moral or theme in the story. Maybe that is how this story is supposed to go, but I would have to say it wasn't my favorite. However, I did like the illustrations. The princess' bed that was stacked high with mattresses was so creative and fun. It looked so [...]

    4. Traditional-literature book #20This book was about a prince who wanted to marry a princess but it had to be a real princess. He was having trouble finding a real princess so he went back home and stopped searching. A storm came and then a girl showed up and claimed she was a real princess, but the queen wasn't so sure. So they put 20 mattresses and 20 quilts on top of a pea and that's where the girl had to sleep. When they asked her how she slept, she said it was awful and she had bruises from w [...]

    5. i thought I was well acquainted with this fairy tale but I was surprised by the ending. In all the stories I remember a bowling ball is placed beneath all the mattresses to ensure the princess will feel it, unlike the improbable pea. The more I thought about it though, I realized including a bowling ball would add a level of common sense to the story, but old fairy tales weren't always concerned by logic. Like Arthur pulling the sword from the stone and proving his right to rule, the princess fe [...]

    6. In this story there was a prince looking to marry a princess. He went looking all over the world but didn't find any. One night there was a storm and ended up having a princess that showed up. The queen told the servents to go to the garden and get a pea. She put the pea on the bottom and piled up 20 mattresses and this is where the princess was to sleep. The princess slept horribly that night and that is how they knew she was a real princess. They ended up getting married and lived happily ever [...]

    7. This is pretty much Andersen's version verbatim, though the translation is a tiny bit different from the one I've read. The real draw here would be the illustrations. They're quite lovely, the sort of ones I could imagine framing and hanging on the wall in a child's bedroom. Everything is in soft pastels, and the princess does look like she just came out of a very heavy downpour. On the whole, it's a very nice vesion.

    8. This is a nice book. The illustrations by Dorothee Duntze are nice.I've never quite understood this tale. First of all, 20 mattresses would have squashed a pea. Secondly, not even a princess could feel a pea through all that. But even if she did, what does that say about her? That she is so fussy that she is bothered by a mere pea would be reason to disqualify her from marrying the prince.Yeah, I know; I read too much into these things.

    9. This is my favorite Andersen story, but not this version with its illustrations. I did like the use of the coral color instead of a pink. But the faces on the people did not appeal to me. I'm off to look at other versions.

    10. This has always been one of my favorite stories, so of course I liked this book! The artwork was interesting though. It was a little different that you would expect and not something you see very often. It is definitely worth reading though!

    11. I always heard references to this story but never actualy knew what happened in the story although everyone knows a simplified the version it is worth reading the full version.

    12. This was a nice remake of the old story by the same name. The illustrations are a bit different than typical children's books which makes it that much more interesting.

    13. This book was a classic telling of the story of Princess and the Pea, but it was not very creative and the pictures were not all that great. It wasn't very impressive or memorable.

    14. This book had very pretty art work and was a great story of the princess and the pea. It is the story that everyone knows of, but well done.

    15. I really enjoyed this book. The illustrations were very entertaining and beautifully drawn. It is a very good read for children and tells the story well. Overall it was an enjoyable read.

    16. It was a very simple book. I could have told the story myself. The artwork was nice, but also as simple as the story.

    17. The princess and the pea is a classic fairy tale written by Hans Christian Anderson. As I grew up I remember viewing this story almost as a parody, making fun of the way princesses were chosen by princes because of ridiculous measures, Cinderella's shoe, Sleeping Beauty's aesthetics, and this Princesses ability to sense a pea under twenty mattresses while she slept. As an adult, it sounds like the beginning of a bad joke.quote: "Now they could tell that she must be a real princess, because she h [...]
