The Princess and the Pea

An ingeniously hilarious and highly entertaining version of Hans Christian Andersen's very short story. King Maximillian of Maxwell-by-the-Sea and his mother, Ancient Queen Maude, summon Esmeralda Smythe, the only, and therefore, wisest, gypsy in the kingdom. According to the Ancient Book of Wit and Wisdom, Esmeralda says, the Prince must now go on a journey to seek a bride. If he finds no one suitable, he must return home to wait for a bride to come to him. Your entire family will enjoy the story about not judging a book by its cover.

By Michele L. Vacca. Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s Story.
