The Princess and the Pizza by Mary Jane Auch, illustrated by Herm & Mary Jane Auch is an alternate version of the Princess and the Pea. Although there is a pea hidden under 16 mattresses, this princess is resourceful and uses her noggin'. Well she has dumb luck, too.
The paintings appear to be acrylics and are quite expressive and colorful. It has a humorous flavor and an unusual ending.
Bringing different versions of a familar tale to the schools for Kindergarten through third grade is so much fun for me. I love to see the children's eyes enjoying a new tale or a new twist on an old tale.
