Synopsis

The Princess and the Pea by John Cech

This is an elegant retelling of one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories. It features stunning illustrations that capture the fantasy and romance of this appealing tale. It is suitable for children aged 4 to 7 years old. One of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories gets a breathtaking showcase, with lavish art and an elegant retelling by acclaimed writer and professor John Cech. Although the handsome prince meets ladies blessed with beauty, wealth and brains, he knows in his heart that none is the true princess he longs for. Then, one stormy night, a wet, disheveled and very weary young woman knocks at the castle door. Could she be his queen? One tiny pea buried underneath twenty soft mattresses might reveal the truth. Bernhard Oberdieck's stunning images, with their soft colour and unusual perspectives, capture all the fantasy and romance of Andersen's appealing tale.
