The Princess and the Pea by Hans Christian Andersen, Maja Dusikova | WaterstonesAndersen 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.

Once upon a time there was a prince who wanted to marry a princess; but she would have to be a real princess. He travelled all over the world to find one, but nowhere could he get what he wanted. There were princesses enough, but it was difficult to find out whether they were real ones. There was always something about them that was not as it should be. So he came home again and was sad, for he would have liked very much to have a real princess. One evening a terrible storm came on; there was thunder and lightning, and the rain poured down in torrents.

I think that this story is a very good story and its very shrt story but still its a lovely story???????????. Bertie - February 6, the prince knows that she is a true princess, working from a German translation that had increased Andersen's lone pea to a trio of peas in an attempt to make the story more credib. When she wakes in the morning and tells them she as felt the pea during her sleep.This inspires hope in the readers for their own futures and strength within themselves. Palak - October 14, Wow so great and fun And verry nice story i love it I want share my sister. Will she feel the pea underneath the teh pile of mattresses.
