The prince and his bride had hijos galore, one for each mattress, and then had no more.
La Princesa and the pea, published in 2017 was one of my favorites by far. It was interesting to see this traditional story told in a different culture. I loved how they gave a glossary at the beginning to make the different words easier to understand. I also enjoyed how the sentences rhymed it made it more enjoyable to follow along.

#ReallyRandomFebruary Day 23: This bilingual retelling has all the familiar elements embedded into it, but I like how the #Prince was portrayed to be a mama‘s boy, but also with his own wits about him. The unfamiliar Spanish words did not detract at all from the narrative, but contributed a lilting, whimsical, lyrical quality to the story – more than anything. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-lnr
