Princess and the Peanut (The): A Royally Allergic Fairytale - Cover
Princess and the Peanut (The): A Royally Allergic Fairytale
Sue Ganz Schmitt, Wild Indigo 2011
A traditional princess and prince fairy tale retold with a peanut (rather than a pea) causing a huge allergic reaction. Funny illustrations while the princess gets a shot of an antihistamine and the castle is carefully cleared of any trace of peanuts or other tree nuts. The prince gives up his favorite snack of peanut butter & jam and it's on to the wedding. There is a good glossary at the back for families and teachers with information about allergies and treatment.
