When a bedraggled young lady shows up at the castle, only the queen will be able to determine if she’s really the princess she claims to be. Impeccable manners, irresistible charm, and stunning good looks do all point to princess. But only a tiny green pea hidden under a dozen down mattresses can prove whether the girl is royal—or regular.

Starred Review. Kindergarten-Grade 5–Child has expanded Andersens tale from a one-page gem into a humorous picture book that will delight the whole family. Color photographs of a cleverly designed, three-dimensional miniature world of dolls reveal wonderful details. The mattresses–all 12 of them–are covered in multi-patterned cloth, tables and cupboards display real china plates, and a mirror reflects a princess sitting in her parlor. The prince says that he wanted to marry for love. In an aside, Child comments, He was just that kind of romantic boy. The prince now tells his parents: I would gladly marry tomorrow but...she must be more mesmerizing than the moon and I must find her more fascinating than all the stars in the sky. And there must be a certain...something about her. The loving king and queen throw a royal ball so that their son can meet all the eligible princesses; unfortunately, not one fills the bill. He then decides to travel far and wide to look for a real princess. It is not until he comes home that she appears at his door. We all know what happens then. Every library will want at least one copy of this fabulously funny and unique book.–Kirsten Cutler, Sonoma Library, CA
