Hello there children. Have a seat! Or stand.
Do what you like! It's cool schools' fairy tale time.
Our tale is one of vegetables and princesses.
Yes! It's the princess and the pea!
Lovely. Once upon a time, there was a very picky prince.
His socks had to match his shirt, or he wouldn't leave the castle.
AND, he would only eat his peas
if they were served with baby carrots and a side of ranch dressing and a pickle.
Very particular. His bed pillows had to be
fluffed exactly six times each before he could even think about going to bed.
That little prince grew up and it was time for him to find a princess and get
But like always, he was very, very picky.
"No, too tall! Too short. Nostrils are too big."
"Do you prefer dogs or cats? Wrong!"
"I like hamsters. Next. What do you like on your pizza?"
"Pineapple?! Ew! Who do you like better?
Spiderman or The Flash? My Little Pony?!"
"Wrong answer. Can you rub your tummy and pat your head at the same time?"
Next!" "Who does he think he is, a prince?"
Well, actually, yes. Then
one night, a terrible thunderstorm was raging outside..
A girl who said she was a princess, but was late because of the rainstorm and her shoe
falling off in a puddle and her getting a blister on a big toe..
Well, anyway, she came to the castle door. "Oh my gosh
I'm so sorry to bother you but it's literally raining cats and dogs out there
and I really must change into some dry clothes. Plus, the rain makes my hair like
totally frizzy and I just can't
deal with that." But the prince liked her. Because he also didn't like it
when his hair got frizzy.
He told her to come in and he quickly asked her the important questions one needs
to ask when they're picking out a princess.
"What do you like better cats or dogs?"
"I prefer hamsters, haha." "What do you like on your pizza?"
Nothing! That'll ruin the pizza
"Spiderman or The Flash?" "Duh. Spiderman."
And she could totally rub her tummy well padding ahead
While standing on one foot! Wow!
The prince really liked her, but he thought she was
too good to be true. He just didn't believe she was
actually a real princess. He did what any good prince does when he doesn't know what to do..
He asked his mom, the Queen. She did a quick
check on Google. "Oh yes! The classic
pea test." The Queen placed one tiny little green
pea underneath the mattress in the guest bedroom. If she's a real princess,
then she'd feel the pea and wouldn't be able to sleep.
Just to be really, extra, super duper, 100%, positively, completely sure
the Queen added another few mattresses
and lots of soft feather mattress toppers and
out of habit, fluffed the pillows 6 times each.
That night, the princess could not sleep
at all. Perhaps it was the rainstorm outside,
or maybe a bad dream, or maybe it was
the pea! The next morning when they gathered for breakfast,
the young lady couldn't stop yawning.
"How did you sleep my dear?" "Well the room
room was lovely, and the pillows were like perfectly fluffed,
but there was this huge bump, like right in the middle of my back,
it was terrible. I thought it was a huge rock, and it kept me tossing and turning
all night. Well, I did some digging, and I found this.
A pea!" "A pea, you say?"
"I quite love peas." "Oh, so do I. But only with baby carrots
and a little ranch dip on the side
and maybe a pickle." "Mom, it's her! She's the one.
The perfect princess!" The girl was not only a total princess,
she turned out to have a mega-ton in common with the prince.
They were both very picky, but, they were
very picky about all the same things so they had to get married.
,Everyone at the wedding agreed they were a perfect pair!
Well not that kind of pear. Anyway,
they would just like peas and carrots. With the little ranch dip of course.
Kind of a fairytale ending don't you think?
"But hey, don't go away yet. What fairytale do you want to see next on fairytale time

"Too-da-loo boys and girls!"
