DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK: The Princess and the Pea gets a fresh twist in this charming bilingual retelling. El principe knows this girl is the one for him, but, as usual, his mother doesn’t agree. The queen has a secret test in mind to see if this girl is really a princesa. But the prince might just have a sneaky plan, too. Readers will be enchanted by this Latino twist on the classic story, and captivated by the vibrant art inspired by the culture of Peru.

  • Feb 24, 2017 La Princesa and the Pea by Susan Middleton Elya is a bilingual retelling of The Princess and the Pea. There is a bit of a twist, and I laughed out loud as I read a section of the book. This book will bring great joy to kids. It does a great job of using Spanish words in ways that require children to consider context clues.
  • Oct 05, 2019 The Princess and the Pea La Princesa y el Guisante THE PRINCESS AND THE PEA Featuring 32 pages of fresh captivating illustrations this 8 x 8 story book tells the tale of the princess who must prove that she is dainty enough to marry a prince by sleeping atop a pile of 20 mattresses with a secret pea underneath—but would she feel the pea.

MY TWO CENTS: In this beautifully illustrated book filled with rustic textures and warm colors comes a popular tale filled with humor and reminiscing of Latinx mother-son relationships. Readers are invited to join the quest as the queen and the prince (but mostly the queen) try to find his future wife. The queen’s love for the prince is obvious, as she expects nothing but perfection for her son. The distinct comparison between the queen and her cat’s facial expressions are priceless and bring to the reader’s attention what else they have in common–cattiness and dominance. And rightly so; that’s her hijito lindo. Then comes a fair maiden, ready to prove her love for the prince, as he also awaits her success in the queen’s test. However, nobody is aware of this test besides the queen. The true test is if she feels the pea under twenty mattresses, then she’s the one. Yes, TWENTY. VEINTE.

Will the maiden pass this impossible challenge? Will the prince be able to be with his one true love? Will the queen finally give her blessings to her son and his future wife?

If you grew up with a brother, you can totally relate to this mother-son relationship. The bond between mother and son is like no other, however this story will force you to reminisce about the times that your mom said, “Ay, mijito, let me warm your dinner” to your brother but then expected you to warm up your own dinner. Jealous? Maybe. As an adult reader, I couldn’t help but chuckle at the realistic dialogue between the Queen and her Prince, as well as the perfectly paired facial expressions between the queen and her cat, which added to the character’s moods. You can feel the prince’s desire for love, but, at the same time, he wants to respect his mother’s opinion.

This picture book’s story line will keep you laughing, as it creatively tells the story of an unbreakable mother and son bond. I absolutely appreciate a picture book that can naturally weave in the Spanish language in dialogue and its narrative text without making it awkward for the reader. The Spanish vocabulary was also highlighted in a different text, to accent its beauty throughout the story. The words fit in a natural way of storytelling.

The illustrations were stunning. Upon reading the illustrator’s note by Juana Martinez-Neal, readers discover that the illustrations are inspired by an indigenous group in Peru. The textiles and the culture’s tradition of weaving and embroidery were inspirations for the illustrations and use of color. Martinez-Neal’s attention to detail and inspiration for her illustrations are remarkable and admirable.

Which maiden will be the right niña to be the la princesa to el Príncipe? This is the question to be resolved in La Princesa and the Pea, a picture book that provides readers with a Latino twist on a classic story.

Written by Susan Middleton and illustrated by Juana Martinez-Neal,La Princesa and the Pea tells the story of a prince who knows a particular maiden is for him, but his mother disagrees. The mother then devises a test to determine who the princess will be. Little does she know that her son also has a clever plan to rig the test.

This delightful folktale includes bold, colorful art inspired by the culture of Peru. The text includes words written in Spanish sprinkled throughout the story, such as la madre, and of course la princesa and el Príncipe, among many more.

This sweet book is for any child – no matter their ethnic background – who loves a fun, witty story. It’s also ideal for parents who want to expose their children to the multicultural world around them through the love of reading.

Find La Princesa and the Pea at all major book retailers as well as online at Amazon.
