Book Review: Princess and the Pea by Lauren Child - Reviewed by (23 Nov 2011)

This amazing retelling of the Classic fairytale, Lauren Child has done amazing work on making it her own. If you bought this expercting the same story, just with new illustrations, you'd be very plesantly surprised. The story is about a tired prince, who goes all over the world to search for the princess of his dreams, the one with the certain something; he finds tall, short, plump and dumpy princesses, princesses who like tea, who like cakes, who like dancing and who like reading, but none of them have the special something. Until one arrives right onto his doorstep.

Beautiful with a whole new story and Child's classic pictures!
