    This story is fundamentally stupid. Why would you want to marry someone who notices an imperfection as slight as a pea under 40 mattresses? Does this sound like someone who will be fine with the fact that you wore the same shirt yesterday? Does this sound like someone who would be fine if you slightly burned a bagel? Is there any chance that any weird sex stuff is going down? I think not. To all of the above, if someone can't sleep because of a tiny pea slipped under 40 mattresses, I don't think it This story is fundamentally stupid.

To all of the above, if someone can't sleep because of a tiny pea slipped under 40 mattresses, I don't think it's going to work. Sometimes a small amount of weird grime builds up under the corner of my big toenail. Me and this princess would be doomed.

    The illustration in The Princess and the Pea are comparable to manga. While personally I'm not yet a fan of that style it could attract a big audience. The panels are laid out for anyone regardless of age to follow along with. The reading level on this is 1.8 or Guided Reading Level: L. I thought it was exciting to see a classic tale told in a graphic novel format. Would be good for children learning to read or anyone interested in trying out a graphic novel.

I thought it was exciting to see a classic tale told in a graphic novel format. Would be good for children learning to read or anyone interested in trying out a graphic novel. Having the familiar storyline to hold onto when reading a new format/genre is great I think. I expected it to be a bit longer but the short length I suppose makes sense for the reading level it is geared towards. The book also includes a short biography of Hans Christian Andersen, information about the retelling author and the illustrator, a history of The Princess and the Pea and discussion questions, writing prompts, and a glossary.

    Cute in graphic novel format, but reading this story as an adult irks me. Essentially, a true princess is high maintenance? That's what I gathered. Of course, perhaps there wasn't enough time to develop the characters in a short novel, but none of them had much depth. There's potential here to flesh out the story and characters.

    Text-to-self: In my life something similar to this story happened. My boyfriend and I are Christians. He used to seek a mate in the world and fell into a lot of heartache and disappointment. Once he started to seek God he found me and it was as if it was made to be. His mom has also caused a hiccup in the relationship just like in the story, but things have worked themselves out. Text-to-text: This text reminded me of the popular Cinderella. It has the same concept where the prince is looking for Text-to-self: In my life something similar to this story happened.

His mom has also caused a hiccup in the relationship just like in the story, but things have worked themselves out. Text-to-text: This text reminded me of the popular Cinderella. It has the same concept where the prince is looking for a princess, but can't find the right one anywhere. Then the right one steps into his life and it is obvious. Also the both have an opposing force of someone not wanting them to be together. Text-to-world: This relates to our world because the queen doesn't believe that the princess in the real deal. She puts her to the test and in the end she proves herself. This happens in our world in the fact of sometimes parents are skeptical about friends or potential mates for their children. This helps show that someone can pass the test.

    The author adds a bit to the prince's search for his princess as well as a bit of the princess's background, so it's longer than the original tale, but still true to Andersen's story. The illustrations are clear and borrow some of their style from anime with the exaggerated eyes, etc., and the sections at the end covering parts of Andersen's life as well as some of the history behind the story and a glossary and discussion questions would work well for a children's book club or an advanced readi The author adds a bit to the prince's search for his princess as well as a bit of the princess's background, so it's longer than the original tale, but still true to Andersen's story.

On the whole, it was a good rendition of the story with some interesting appendices.

    This is an utterly ridiculous fairy tale and I didn't like the way the characters' eyes were illustrated (especially the princess's), but I really do like the retelling and the format. I kind of love that everything is getting turned into a graphic novel now.

    The story is the traditional telling of the classic with clear, bright illustrations. At the end of the graphic novel, the author includes a glossary, a short history of the story, discussion questions, writing prompts, and a website for further exploration.
