THE GIST: This sweet take on the classic The Princess and the Pea, is perfect for your early reader or preschooler.

SYNOPSIS: “In Animal Fairy Tales, beautiful illustrations and simple text retell classic fairy tales from a new perspective: all the characters are animals! This book, a retelling of The Princess and the Pea, tells the story of the Poodle and the Pea, in which a lost dog is revealed to be a princess after a servant has a good idea.

From the Animal Fairy Tales series. For ages 3-7.

* Beautiful, fun illustrations
* Simple text appropriate for both early independent readers and parents reading to a child
* New twists on traditional tales.” (NetGalley)

 THE LOWDOWN: My daughter loved it, so it gets thumbs up from me too. That’s what really matters right? She’s five so her tastes aren’t quite refined, but when you are reading a fairytale about a princess dog and her penchant for perfection, how can you disappoint? My only complaint was that the illustrations were a little dark for my taste. I wish the colors were a more vibrant and the story a little meatier, but these are minor gripes. So, if you a want a little change-up from those traditional Disney-esque princess stories, this tale about a princess poodle who gets herself into her prickly predicament won’t disappoint.
