Violet Eyes: A Retelling of the "Princess and the Pea" by Debbie Viguié
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A quick read. "Violet Eyes" is a sweet little re-telling of "The Princess and the Pea". Not a lot of character depth to it. The book mainly focuses on getting the re-telling of the fairy tale done. Basically, a farm girl falls in love with a prince (kinda the opposite of The Princess Bride). Afterwards she suddenly learns that she is really a princess. She was raised by peasants to avoid being killed by her kingdom's enemies. Because she is a princess, she qualifies to compete for her prince's hand in marriage against other princesses in the land.
Although this is YA, it would be perfectly fine for an advanced younger reader or to read to a small child that loves fairy tales.
