I downloaded this to my Kindle app on my Galaxy Notw 2--it's great for keeping my little one occupied in line or in a waiting room. This retelling cuts right to the chase--20 mattresses, + 20 featherbeds...no additions each night to test whether or not it was a fluke that the girl did not sleep. I always loved the additions and the suspense created! Still, it was a cute story, and most important, my four year old didn't know the difference. ;)

My daughter was in tears when he had to return this book to the library so of course she got this version as a reward one week. Moderate length which is always a benefit for me and her and she loves her golden books.

This is my favorite fairy tale, and not my daughter and I enjoy it together. It is short, sweet and to the point. I am so glad someone finally put out a good version.

'The Princess And The Pea' is one of those books that is truly a fairy tale. Most children love this tale and the book brings out a great deal of conversation.

A prince is searching for his true princess. One of his tests to ascertain if the princess is indeed real, is to place a small pea under a mattress and then add 20 mattresses on top. If a young woman can feel the pea, than, she is, indeed, a princess. Princess wanna be's come and go , until the real one is found. My granddaughter loves this story and likes to hear about all the mattresses that are laid upon a single pea. Many questions are asked about the pea, mattresses, princes and princesses. It is good to discuss this is a fairy tale and is not true.

The illustrations are bright and colorful. Vivid pictures jump off the page, the prince, the princess and the mattresses come alive. The writing is the fairy tale from yore, the ones we remember as children.

I purchased this book because I enjoyed it going up and I read it to my children. Now I'm a grandma and decided to start reading to my grandchildren and they love it, what surprised me the most is the price of this used (NEW) book, it wasnt used at all and I was able to personalize this book with their names in it so now they smile saying read my book.
this was one of many books I've purchased and love so much. I have recommended this to my children for home collections. even their cheap selves can afford this. Thank you soo much
Love this one my 3 year old say grandma I'm a princess too.! :)

In general I love the Golden Books.

This story in particular is average at best - I'm not saying it should be updated for more modern times because it is what it is. I just don't think that it offers any enrichment for a little boy or little girls developing mind...
