the princess and the pea

The tale of a prince, a princess, perfect politeness, and a peculiarly hard pea. This modern version of the classic Princess & The Pea is so much fun to read - filled with snippets of vintage wallpaper dresses and tiny twinkling chandeliers. I bought this at Anthropologie about a year ago and read it almost every night to my daughter. Artist Lauren Child (of Charlie & Lola fame) creates the most magical scenes, you just want to jump right in.

Ah ha! I knew those illustrations looked familiar! We have that book too--it's a favorite.
