This is a book about love. The prince wants to find a princess and he goes out in search of one and finds a girl he will ask to be his princess but his mother has to do the test. She lays a pea under twenty mattresses and twenty feather blankets. The next morning the mother ask how she slept and the girl said she could not sleep because there was something poking her the back. The prince said she was to be his princess.

This is the classic story of The Princess and the Pea, only the characters are tigers. This, I find, adds confusion for distinguishing males from females (if you don't look closely at their clothing) because, being tigers, they all have the same features. The illustrations were a little too realistic for me because I feel I shouldn't have to look at the characters' clothing to know if it's a boy or a girl. Even though this disappointed me, I would recommend the story to any adult who has a young child because even though it's been retold many times, The Princess and the Pea is always entertaining.

Interesting book, but what does it really teach your kids? A critical prince who deciphers a princess to be someone who is too finicky that they would bruise if there was a little pea that laid below a bed made up of 20 mattresses and 20 feather mattress toppers!

good old ' fairy tales ' from my childhood enriched as they were retold, embellished & given to a new generation. too bad sorcerers of the e-readers don't grok to old concept of storytelling vs 1st person, emotionless words.

The B&N review is inaccurate - there are no bunnies here. The story is traditional and the illustrations highly stylized. The illustrations are as you see on the cover here. My daughter was 6 when she received the book and loved it, though the illustration is probably best appreciated by kids at least that age.
