Often, I found things were not quite as they first seemed. Not all princesses are content to marry the prince, no matter how charming, or how carefully the queen arranges the peas.
'The Prince and the Problem' is an imaginative retelling of the classic fairy tale 'The Princess and the Pea'. Originally featured in Hilary McKay's Fairy Tales, this short story is sure to capture the imagination!
From the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize-winning storyteller Hilary McKay and featuring black-and-white line and tone illustrations from the talented Sarah Gibb.
