REVIEW:
To the point!
This story is so short, I almost thought I missed something.
It's a cute tale though and I enjoyed the princess character at the end. She was full of spunk and that was how she enamored the king, queen and prince as well.
Not so sure I totally get it, but in afterthought, I'm sure more will come to me.
Short and sweet little read!


3/5

  1. Is this a retelling?

    1. Not really. Just a different author telling the same story their way.

  2. Hmm, I wondered the same thing. And is it just an ebook short story, meant for an anthology?

  3. I've always liked the story of The Princess and the Pea. My parents joke that it's about me because even as a kid I could feel every lump or bump in my bed! lol!

  4. I think the Princess and the Pea is about me since I am never comfortable ever! So is the twist worth the reading?
