Summary

"The Princess and the Pea", one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved fairy tales, is narrated by Sir Roger Moore, KBE for the GivingTales project.

This is a short but fascinating tale which talks about a prince who wanted to marry a real princess. Luck smiled upon him and sent the girl that claimed she is precisely that, right to his front door. She knocked at the door of the castle, all wet from the rain and lost. Queen presented to the princess one test which proved that the girl was a real princess. She has set a single pea, under dozens of mattresses and blankets, to check whether the princess will feel this.

"The Princess and the Pea" was released on May 8th, 1835. The original title in Danish: "Prindsessen paa Ærten".

the end is new to me!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Princess and the Pea (GivingTales) to be better than the print version?

I won't say that, because I have loved the story since first read it, many years ago. but the reading is turly beautiful, perfect as the story itself.

Who was your favorite character and why?

the little princess of course.

Have you listened to any of Roger Moore’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I did see every Bond film of him...

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

happiness, happiness, happiness

Any additional comments?

this story is longer than which I read as a child. the story I read just end at prince married princess, without all the evil sorcerer, emerald or crown. it's a happy surprise to me, and a little confusing.
