Most of the time she is good Princess Rosebud. But when there's a hole in her sock, or her sweater is itchy, or–ick!–the peas on her plate are smushed up right next to the carrots, this strong-willed little miss becomes the picky and prickly Princess Fussy. Sound Familiar? The clever rendition of The Princess and the Pea offers a funny, insightful reflection of how important having certain things be "just so" can be to certain kids. Everyone will cheer the surprising twist that reveals why Rosebud cannot get comfy at bedtime. Is it simply the return of Princess Fussy? Or might there be a more royal reason for her finicky convictions?

About the Author

Harriet Ziefert has worn many hats and handles in her long and distinguished career(s) as an educator, book packager, author, and founding publisher of Blue Apple Books. She modeled this story's princess-y Rosebud character after her two granddaughters. And though she admits that, like Rosebud, she also needs certain things to be "just so," she likes carrots and peas just fine—though not under her mattress. The author lives in South Orange, New Jersey.
