The Princess and the Pea • TYA • World Tales

Adapted from the Hans Christian Andersen tale by Genevieve Aichele

The typical array of princesses––all royal, all wrong. But when Prince Emory meets Anya, the woman of his dreams, he must convince his mother, Queen Angelica (who is anything but), that Anya is for him. Aside from being a spoiled and selfish snot-bag, Princess Paris, (Queen Angelica’s choice) is only in love with herself, not Prince Emory. Prince Emory wants a kingdom different from the indulgent me-fest which his mother and her supporters have given the people. And Anya seems just the right choice to help him reform the current social structure.
