    • The Princess and the Pea is a famous story from 1835, by Hans Christian Andersen, which has been adapted and retold numerous times. The original is quite short, and clearly satirical and tongue in cheek. Really it is a one-idea story, in which an obviously ridiculous situation is contrived, to test whether a princess is truly a princess. Charles Boner was the first to translate The Princess and the Pea into English, as "The Princess on the Peas" in "A Danish Story-Book" in 1846. In the story, a [...]


    • First impressions are not always correct and that the smallest of things can make a difference.A young girl who shows up at the king’s house at night claiming to be a princess. Due to the girl’s poor and dishevelled appearance, the royal family has a hard time believing her story. The queen decides to test the girl and discover if she is telling the truth by placing a small pea under her bed, which is made up of 20 mattresses and 20 feather beds. The next morning, the girl complains of bruis [...]


    • This book tells the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairytale ‘The Princess and the Pea’ in which a young prince seeks to find a ‘real’ princess to marry. When a bedraggled girl knocks on the castle doors amidst a stormy night, the king and queen doubt her claims of being a ‘real’ princess. They decide to put her to the test, placing a pea under twenty mattresses and allowing her to sleep on it. Only a ‘real’ princess would object to such discomfort. In true fairytale style, the [...]



    • This short fairytale tells the story of a Prince in search of a “real” princess. He searches far and wide for a real princess but returns home alone, sad and disappointed. One stormy night there is a surprise visit to the castle from a young girl claiming that she in fact is a real princess. The queen decides to test this by placing a pea at the bottom of the princess’s bed layered with 20 mattresses.

    • A prince wants to marry a princess. When a young woman is seeking shelter one rainy and stormy evening, and claims she is a princess, the prince and queen test her. The young woman sleeps on twenty mattresses and beneath them is a pea. In the morning, she is bruised all over, and therefore, they are convinced that she is a princess.It is a very short story where princesses are very fragile and vulnerable.


    • TRADITIONAL LITERATURE- A fun, quick read for students with less of an interest in sitting still for long;). It gets the point of the story across without dragging the story on; however, not much of a moral to this story!


    • Oh, rating this is so hard. I absolutely loved it as a child but, coming back to it now as an adult, I'm horrified by it. I've given it 3 stars for the nostalgia but oh the misogyny.







    • I remember watching it as a cartoon and loving it, it was longer than the story but still, one of my favorites.


    • The part I enjoy the most about the Princess and the Pea is the way the other princess' - to - be were not acceptable for one reason or another. I see this section of the book as a chance to teach and talk about manners and self-awareness. As a read aloud, this book has many aspects to stop, discuss and receive insight and comments from the children. Another aspect of the book is the Princess, herself. This book was first presented around 1835 by Hans Christian Anderson. This was not a time when [...]

    • Este cuento ciertamente no era de mis favoritos aunque muy entretenido y divertido de leer, creo que nunca me encanto la idea de una persona tan sensible y que eso le resultara bien. Pensándolo bien tal ves se debe a mi persona tan sensible y dolorosa como aquella persona ya que a ella si le resulto a su favor y a mi nunca me ha beneficiado en tan grande medida en términos terrenales, lo que debo decir es que ahi se detiene nuestra semejanza.


    • "Prinţesa şi bobul de mazăre" e un basm cu un puternic aspect moralizator şi antifeudal deopotrivă. Prin acesta, Andersen continuă bătălia împotriva fastului aristocratic. ****Mi-am propus, în această perioadă în care mă simt întru totul presat de timp, dar totodată avid de a citi ceva, să descopăr ceea ce în copilăria mea timpurie nu am putut afla. Citind basmele lui Andersen, constat că, deşi au un colorit aparent infantil, ele sunt deopotrivă şi pentru "oamenii mari".


    • The Princess and the Pea is a fairy tale that I would describe as simple, but cute. The story evolved around a test for a prince to find a real princess to marry. Another quality that I enjoyed about this tale was the fact that there were no villains. I do not know how I would use this story for educational purposes, but it is a enjoyable quick read for people of all ages.


    • Cute!The classic tale is brought to life with cute pictures. Just the story I remembered from my childhood. I read it to my daughter.





    • This is my all time favorite children's story and I wanted to get a pretty hard cover version for my shelf!




    • Good book we bought last week at Savers. Not the best version of the Princess and the Pea ever, but still enjoyable. And, of course, she is the princess I identify with most in life.
