Hans Christian Andersen wrote the 1835 tale of a princess with a sensitive nature, sensitive enough to feel a pea hidden under several layers of bedding; it has lasted throughout generations in many cultures. His first collection of seven fairy tales, including The Princess and the Pea, was the beginning of a new genre of stories for children. Our version is exquisitely illustrated by Lynn McClain.
