34 Best illustrated PRINCESS AND THE PEA images | Princess, the pea, Fairy tales, PrincessAndersen had heard the story as a child, and it likely has its source in folk material, possibly originating from Sweden, as it is unknown in the Danish oral tradition. The story tells of a prince who wants to marry a princess but is having difficulty finding a suitable wife. Something is always wrong with those he meets and he cannot be certain they are real princesses because they have bad table manners or they are not his type. One stormy night a young woman drenched with rain seeks shelter in the prince's castle. She claims to be a princess, so the prince's mother decides to test their unexpected, unwitting guest by placing a pea in the bed she is offered for the night, covered by huge mattresses and 20 feather-beds. In the morning, the guest tells her hosts that she endured a sleepless night, kept awake by something hard in the bed that she is certain has bruised her.

I liked this story because it was funny. Others thw said that Andersen constantly felt as though he did not belong, and longed to be a part of the upper class. Maggy Larissa Adaptation. The princess gets married to the prince and they live happily, though maybe not completely honestly.
I hope you have more books as good as this. Natasha - June 6, I like the way storynory change the story a bit like the 20 matresses. Quantity Add to basket.
This little gem of a story by Hans Christian Andersen reveals the ultimate test to find out whether or not a girl is a true princess.
