The Princess and The Peanut Educates Children On Life Threatening Allergies

The Princess and the Peanut: A Royally Allergic Tale

What I Can Tell You:
If you have a child with peanut allergies you will understand just how important this story is. As the mom of children with peanut allergies it was nice to see something created just for them. The writer Sue Ganz-Schmitt took the story of the Princess and the Pea and changed it just a bit. In this story, a woman claiming to be a princess shows up at the prince's house after a thorough search through the Kingdom for a real princess, there were none. The Queen and the staff decide to do the test with mattresses and a pea but there are no peas in sight. So, they use a peanut! Lo and behold the "princess" ended up with an allergic reaction. She IS A PRINCESS! The prince who loves his PB&J decides to give up his beloved sandwiches and live with eat just jelly from now on as long as he can do it with the princess at his side. The End!

Well, not really because I would be remiss to not mention the illustrations by Micah Chambers-Goldberg! Truly works of art to accompany the story!
