The one about the prince looking for the perfect, sensitive princess to be his bride. The one about how the perfect princess would be so delicate and dainty that she would be kept awake at night by the presence of one tiny pea under 20 mattresses.
Yes, there’s a prince in search of a wife, but he’s seen enough fragile, high-maintenance princesses. His own brother is married to one, and they don’t seem on their way to a “happily ever after.”
Prince Henrik wants a girl who likes to camp and play hockey.
So he develops his own test and is very surprised by the girl who passes.
Let’s hear more from today’s guest reviewer.
Today’s reviewer: Cora
I like: Football, dancing, drawing and prairie dogs.
This book was about: A prince who is trying to find a princess who likes camping and hockey. He doesn’t care for a beautiful princess!
The best part was when: Pippa and the prince go play hockey.
I laughed when: It said, “Once upon a time there was a prince called Henrik who wanted very much to fall in love and get married. He was an outdoorsy type and hoped that the princess he married would like hockey and camping!”
I was worried when: Prince Henrik couldn’t find a princess.
I was surprised that: Pippa liked the peas in her bed.
This book taught me: Don’t love someone because of who they are on the outside, love them because who they are on the inside.
Other kids reading this book should watch for: The part when Prince Henrik put a whole pack of frozen peas instead of 1 single pea under the bed.
Three words that best describe this book are: “Hilarious.” “Outstanding.” “Curious.”
My favorite line or phrase in the book is: Many young girls visited, but none passed the test.
You should read this book because: It teaches you a big lesson that will help you in life. (See my answer above about what this book taught me.)
Thank you, Cora!
