H.C. Andersen was a Danish author. Although a prolific writer of plays, travelogues, novels, and poems, he is best remembered for his immortal fairy tales. Among the most known are The Princess and The Pea (1835), The Little Mermaid (1837), The Emperor’s New Clothes (1837-1838), The Ugly Duckling, The Little Matchsticks Girl, The Tin Soldier (1845), The Snow Queen ( 1844-1846). Elena Pokaleva is an illustrator and a book graphic living between Czechia, Italy and France.
A lonely young prince wants to get married, but how can he find a real princess? By feeling a pea through twenty mattresses and twenty featherbeds, a girl proves she is a real princess. This beautifully illustrated version of Hans Christian Andersen's classic fairy tale has been rewritten specifically for children who are just starting to read and presents a simple text in Italian and English, with illustrations by Russian Elena Pokaleva.
