Barefoot Books – Princess and the Pea (Paperback)

When a sensitive prince goes searching far and wide for a bride, his tender heart can hardly bear the disappointment. One stormy night, a girl with eyes the color of the rain appears at the palace door seeking shelter. The queen makes up a bed for her and slips a single green pea under the mattress. Could she be the one the prince has been looking for? Xanthe Gresham’s lyrical prose brings rich detail and depth to this beloved Hans Christian Andersen story, and the sumptous mixed-media artwork make this retelling one-of-a-kind.
