    Do you like retelling of fairy tales? Gail Carson Levine is the author for you She is witty and pokes fun at fairy tales all the while making you love the story even “ She cried when her porridge was too hot or too cold or too salty or too bitter or too sweet She cried when her bathwater was too hot or too cold or too wet or not wet enough” – The Princess Test by Gail Carson LevineJust by the first page you can grasp the humor Levine puts in her words Her use of run on sentences leaves you out of breath and laughing from the repetitiveness In The Princess Test a retelling of a Danish fairy tale called The Princess and the Pea by Hans Christian Andersen or “The Princess on the Peas” a little girl named Lorelei has a humble heart and is kind to anyone and everyone she meets The problem is that even though she wants to help and wants to contribute to the household chores she always ends up hurt in one way or anotherThe nanny her father hired does not like Lorelei because she is so lazy She can’t do anything without getting hurt She wants to do her offPrince Nicholas has two parents that never agree on anything If one thinks it’s too salty the other thinks it’s too sweet The king and ueen come up with a test that maidens will undertake who want to marry Nicholas Lorelei after some unfortunate events becomes an applicantWhat will happen? Will Nicholas and Lorelei end up together? Will Lorelei end up accidentally hurt herself beyond repair? What exactly are the test and why are they so ridiculous but so true?Levine has a splash of humor you will not find anyone else Using plays on words and awkward humor this is perfect for a story for a young girl or for a grown woman who can’t get enough of fairy tales cough me as long as the scary nanny's thoughts don't run you off I will always be a fan of Levine’s writing

    Very short re telling of The Princess and the Pea It's a pretty cute and funny to be such a tiny book

    This was cute Laughed out loud a handful of times Prince Nicholas was beside himself Where was Lorelei? Lorelei was flat on her face in the forest She had tripped over a tree root and she was too tired to get up She hurried across the drawbridge Achoo She would be dry inside If the owner was an ogre and he decided to eat her she'd warm up while she roasted And if he was a decent ogre he might even let her take a bath before he cooked her

    I enjoyed how Lorelei has specific skills embroidery and herbal medicine because she’s spent her life coping with allergens I also found Trudy’s murderous intentions odd yet funny I enjoyed hearing about the princess tests and why Nicholas wanted to marry Lorelei which was than just her looks

    I regret to inform you all that this is still the most charming book in existence Gail Carson Levine perfected it in 1999 and no one else needs to trythat's a lie cute clever retellings are my favorite genre please keep making them

    Levine's style and spirit are fun to read but I was disappointed in character integrity usually held high in fairy tales It's a spoof on the Princess and the pea and I like the description on the goodreads website it makes all the inconsistencies make sense
