The Princess and the Packet of Frozen Peas by Tony Wilson - ESSENTIAL



Unlike the Prince in the traditional fairy tale The Princess and the Pea, Prince  Henrik wants a princess who likes to play hockey, go camping and has a nice smile. Prince Henrick watched his sister-in-law and decided he wanted the complete opposite in his princess.  Instead of following his brother’s advice by putting a single pea under a pile of mattresses, Henrick found a thin camping mattress, an old sleeping bag and used a whole packet of FROZEN PEAS.  Parents and children alike will delight in the tender and unique ending to this not so common fairy tale!

What a fantastic twist on the traditional fairy tale The Princess and the Pea!  Rarely does such a creative plot such as this come along. We loved this book!  The illustrations are so much fun.  The colors are subtle and detailed.  Each page tells a story in and of itself.  We loved the practicality of the plot and celebrated its fun and unique ending.  This is a must for every home and library!
