The Princess on the Pea

A prince wanted to find a real princess, but although he travelled the world, which is full of princesses, he could not find a real princess. So, he returned home, sad and empty-handed. But one stormy night, a soaking wet princess knocked on his door and asked for shelter for the night. The prince’s mother was not convinced that she was a real princess and decided to find out the truth.

Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was a Danish author, poet and artist. Celebrated for children’s literature, his most cherished fairy tales include "The Emperor's New Clothes", "The Little Mermaid", "The Nightingale", "The Steadfast Tin Soldier", "The Snow Queen", "The Ugly Duckling" and "The Little Match Girl". His books have been translated into every living language, and today there is no child or adult that has not met Andersen's whimsical characters. His fairy tales have been adapted to stage and screen countless times, most notably by Disney with the animated films “The Little Mermaid” in 1989 and “Frozen”, which is loosely based on “The Snow Queen”, in 2013.

Thanks to Andersen's contribution to children's literature, his birth date, April 2, is celebrated as International Children's Book Day.
