The Very Smart Pea and the Princess-To-Be


The Very Smart Pea and the Princess-To-Be Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When it comes to sorting out a Real Princess from a Fake Princess, the famous pea-under-the-mattress test is tried-and-true. But for those of you who may have wondered how anyone could feel a tiny garden-variety pea under the weight of twenty mattresses, this book will put that question to rest once and for all.

This witty spoof was shortlisted for the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal in the UK. It was Mini Grey's first book and a worthy predecessor to such favorites as Traction Man is Here!

About the Author

Mini Grey was given her name after being born in a Mini Cooper automobile in Wales. She studied art and then worked as a theater designer and elementary school teacher before devoting full time to writing and illustrating picture books. In addition to The Very Smart Pea and the Princess-to-be she is also the author of the wildly popular Traction Man is Here! and Traction Man Meets Turbodog.
