The Princess and the Pea
Rachel Isadora (A and ILT)
Rachel Isadora (A and ILT)
List Price: $6.99 (Paperback - Classic Fairy Tale / Africentric Version - 2009)
Description: This adaptation of the well-known Hans Christian Andersen tale of the princess and the pea gets new look and new audience. It begins with a setting in East Africa and a prince searching for a true princess to marry. From far and wide the women come to meet the prince, each identifying herself as a real princess. But in the prince opinion, something isn't right about each and every one of them. One night, a traveling woman asks for refuge in the palace from a terrible storm. She says she's a princess and the prince's clever mother devises a simple plan to determine the princess veracity -- a single pea tucked under more than three dozen mattresses and feather beads. Seeing his family's overnight guest awakens the bruised and restless. In the morning, the prince is overjoyed to meet a woman so delicate that she must be a true princess. And like any good fairy tale, the two marry and live happily ever after. (32 pgs) Ages 4 - 8.
Ashay says, "I really like this story and I love Rachel Isadora's artistry. She really captures the essence of Africa with her use of bright color, patterns and textiles. And I really like how she uses wood textures and collages. There seems to be less content in her version then other versions of the story, but she makes up for it with captivating illustrations. Add this one to your library. Everyone will enjoy it."
