A nice retelling with an ethnic background.


Another great picture book! Wonderful illustrations and a nice updated telling of the classic tale. A must read!

Classic retelling w/ beautiful illustrations

Isadora sticks to the standard version of this classic tale, but her illustrations are very unique. I am a huge fun of her collage technique. My child and I have read many of her stories.

wonderful illustrations

The wonderful illustrations and new setting in this book bring a fresh look at the fairy tale of the princess and the pea.
