Praise

★ “This engaging read-aloud is a fresh reimagining of a classic [. . .] The endearing and playful illustrations set the story in Peru [. . .] And the pea under the mattresses test? Let’s just say that the prince makes sure his chosen one passes with flying colors.”—School Library Journal, starred review

★ “Reading this would be a fabulous way to compare and contrast and use [readers’s] knowledge of the first story and the colorful illustrations to make inferences as to meanings of words and phrases.”—School Library Connection, starred review 

“The classic Hans Christian Andersen tale unfolds with Latin flair [. . . .] Martinez-Neal’s darling, soft-edged mixed-media illustrations bring the brown-skinned characters to life in costumes from different regions of Peru”—Kirkus

“Martinez-Neal’s illustrations, featuring stylishly exaggerated figures rendered in warm tones and delicate lines, are inspired by the textile designs of the indigenous people of Peru. With eye-catching details on every page, this book is sure to capture the imaginations of young readers. Spanish words are sprinkled throughout, and clever rhymes make this a book to enjoy more than once.”—Booklist

“Martinez-Neal’s graceful illustrations . . . really make this lively title a winner . . . . an enjoyable retelling for young audiences, [and] professionals looking to expand the diversity of a fairy-tale collection or unit of study will find it particularly valuable.”—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
