...my favourite children's book.
The Princess and the Pea. As a child I remember having one of those big books full of bedtime stories and The Princess and the Pea was my favourite. Sadly I no longer have that particular book, but I do have a few other versions.
This one is an old Rand McNally Book. I think it is from the early 1970s. These Rand McNally books are fabulous. They have gorgeous illustrations and are perfect for little ones as the stories are generally very simplified so even a young toddler can make it to the end.
And this version is by Lauren Child and Polly Borland. The images are mesmerising and the story beautifully retold in a more complex way. It is a must for all Lauren Child fans and every little girl over 5.
This weeks this is theme by pottymouthmumma was super hard as I have so so many favourite childrens books. I have been collecting them for a long time and they are some of my most treasured possessions. Finally it came down to a toss up between The Princess and the Pea and the Pookie books by Ivy L Wallace. The Pea won but I just cant leave out my favourite little bunny with wings.
