Editorial Reviews

A marvelous performance of the classic fairy tale The Princess and the Pea, by Danish folktale master Hans Christian Andersen, features lively and spirited narration by Helen Davis, sound effects, and a delightful piano accompaniment. Andersen claims it is a "true story" of how a prince searched all over the world, but could never find his "real" princess. Back home, someone came knocking at the city gate on a cold, wet, stormy night and while she said she was a princess, it was not until she passed a test devised by the Queen that the prince knew he had found true love. This selection is from the Thumbelina and Other Fairy Tales collection.

Publisher's Summary

This is a story from the Thumbelina and Other Fairy Tales collection.

This delightful selection is by one of the classic masters of the genre, presented in lively Naxos AudioBooks style with music and sound effects.

This recording is also unique in that the story is read by the finalists of the Naxos AudioBooks/The Times Voice of the Year competition, which offered a recording opportunity to talented reader who had never studied or worked professionally. The competition produced some outstanding natural talent as this recording shows!
