The Real Princess and the Pea

No one knows more about the dreary life of being a servant than orphaned Lizzie, the maid at Madame Bombazine’s Royal Academy of Royalty. At the beck and call of the shallow student princesses and the bullying Madame Bombazine, Lizzie’s cheery personality defies her dismal life, but makes her a favorite of all the shopkeepers. A kindly neighbor steps in with a little magic. Then shy Prince Robert comes along and the magic of love to smooth a course confused by the power of a small green vegetable — the pea. Forget all you ever thought you knew about princesses and peas! It's a fun, new approach to Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale.
