La princesa y el guisante / The Princess and the Pea

Series: Bilingual Tales
by Luz Orihuela Illustrated by Petra Steinmeyer

In this beautiful bilingual version of Hans Christian Andersen's tale, a prince despairs of ever finding a real princess to marry. When a young lady shows up at the castle, only the queen will be able to determine if she's really the princess she claims to be. A tiny green pea hidden under twenty down mattresses can prove whether the girl is royal or regular.
