This beloved tale from Hans Christian Andersen gets an original spin when set in the kingdom of Pilsenferfer! The King and Queen think it’s high time their son Prince Albert found a bride and settled down. But shy Albert can’t stop collecting butterflies for his conservatory long enough to find and woo a royal maiden. And really, who needs to go to all that trouble when the lovely Anne, one of the Queen’s maids, shares his passion for butterflies AND sews the buttons on his coat. If only she were from royal linage like the other candidates, including the food-loving Princess Fatima, the spindly Princess Slivera, and the overly-energetic Princess Karate. Luckily, a slip of the tongue by the cook and a few others in the court reveal there is more to Anne that first realized. She, along with the other three candidates, will be allowed to show her princess qualities through cooking, singing, dancing and the most difficult of all, sleeping upon 20 mattresses piled atop one small pea!
