A Formal Introduction to the Princess and the Pea

Lucy Locket is pleased to introduce Her Royal Highness Princess Peg, seen here modelling the latest in nightwear fashion and clutching her beloved teddy. Her bed has been beautifully handcrafted by the talented "Mr Powder" and dodgily painted by Lucy Locket's darling husband. Her bed is equipped with seven sumptuous mattresses and a dainty floral quilt but sadly these do not protect her from the discomfort caused by a pesky pea.


Peg's origins lie in Australia where her ancestors owe their existence to the very talented Rosalie Quinlan. Peg herself was born in the United Kingdom and is somewhat smaller than her Australian relatives (83% on the photocopier to be precise).

She is happily living with her new friend "Daisy" but is a little affronted by the fact that her two mini Barbie princess cousins want to share her bed with her. Lucy Locket has assured Peg that she will be making sleeping bags for these annoying cousins as soon as possible.

The pea! Thanks for showing the pea! And the little quilts are adorable. Can't wait to see what you come up with for your son. And does he know the My Father's Dragon series? It's a wonderful story -- especially for a dragon lover. It's on amazon.uk (http://www.amazon.co.uk/My-Fathers-Dragon-Trilogy/dp/0394890485/ref=sr_1_1/026-4024930-8120430?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1180616547&sr=8-1)
Even though the description says for 9 to 12 year olds, it makes a great read-aloud for younger kids. Whatever happens -- keep your son's dragons away from the princess and the pea!!!
