    One thought on “The Princess Test”

    1. WrensReads Review: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 more.“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 [...]

    2. 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 website-- it makes all the inconsistencies make sense.

    3. Not amazing, but good. Short. Sweet. Fun. This only took about an hour to read. A great escapist reading moment to lighten my mood after finishing a heavy book. I plan to read the rest of these short stories over the holiday break.

    4. I enjoyed this book. It's a fun retelling of the Princess and the Pea. It really is a charming little book.

    5. Another of the Princess Tales, this time based on the story of the Princess and the Pea. It was quite entertaining and a fun read for children.

    6. (3.5 stars) This is a longer, darker, chapter-book version of the princess and the pea.From page 1, ("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.") I found myself identifying with Lorelei. She is impossibly particular, prone to allergy and illness, and rather clumsy. Lorelei realizes what a handful she can be and shows some regret, but hey, she is who she is. At tim [...]

    7. Reader thoughts: Let's see if I remember correctly. The MC is very fragile and picky, sort of. She has to have everything perfect and just so. She can't even sleep on mattresses if there is a pea underneath. Now, I also think she wasn't whiny about it. The other girls vying to be princess were simpering fools, but the MC wasn't. She just was too delicate to have anything less than the best. She saw past all the tests not because she was spoiled but because she had a sense of whether something wa [...]

    8. I just reread this little book I bought when I was nine and loved; and now I'm loving it all over again. Sure, the language is simple, but not so much that it will bore you, it is for kids but adults may enjoy it if they have a young heart. I love the personality that Levine gives her characters,specially her princesses. Although I'd probably be totally annoyed at Lorelei half the time if I had to live with her, she's so fickle. But not on purpose of course. Which would made me like her. And I h [...]

    9. My four year old daughter handed this to me the other day and then actually listened to the entire story as I read it to her. I would guess the book is actually for maybe seven to nine year olds who can read it to themselves.The story is an adaptation of The Princess and the Pea. It is a short, simple book, with a surprisingly not-nice housekeeper. At least it wasn't the stepmother for once! :)I thought it was funny to have the palace servants prefer picky monarchs, because then the servants ate [...]

    10. Of all the fairy tale retelling books that I have read, this Princess and the Pea retelling was by far my favorite and has always held a soft spot in my heart. The main character Lorelei is delicate, to say the least. She's lovable and kindhearted, but rather blundering and laughable. She suffers from numerous ailments and is clumsy, but she's always interested in helping out. The romance is cute and fluffy, and the story is very entertaining. Anyone with a love for fairy tales will love this cu [...]

    11. This is, like, the BEST variation of The Princess and the Pea ever! (Not that there were many Princess and the Pea variations in the first place, but)

    12. For a complete review, check out my Young Adult book blog:readsandroses/2017/10/16/Lorelei is the daughter of a humble peasant – with the tastes of a princess. Everything must be just-so for this picky, but sweet, girl. She doesn’t mean to be particular; it’s just the way she is. She accidentally finds herself at the castle amongst scores of princesses vying for the hand of the prince. If she can pass The Princess Test, she will get to marry the kind prince.Are you an avid reader of YA fic [...]

    13. In a retelling of The Princess and the Pea, Lorelei is a lady in the village who is so sensitive that any work usually causes her a physical malady. When her mother dies, her father hires Trudy to take care of the household. But Trudy can't stand Lorelei and plots to get rid of her. So, she abandons Lorelei in the woods. Meanwhile, the king and queen are looking for a wife for Prince Nicholas. They have designed a whole battery of tests. Prince Nicholas is not thrilled until Lorelei stumbles int [...]

    14. King Humphrey has decided its time for his son, Prince Nicholas, to marry. But he must make sure that his bride is a real princess, so he devises a series of princess tests, designed to weed out the phonies and the fakes. Meanwhile, Nicholas has fallen in love with Lorelei, a mere blacksmith's daughter. She's no princess but he wants to marry her at the same. How will she ever pass the terrible tests?

    15. I loved all of Gail Carson Levine's stories when I was a kid, she was my favorite author, I pick several of her books up from the library on a whim just to see if I would like them as much as I did when I was a kid. YES I WOULD I REALLY WOULD. I am feeling very nostalgic right now.

    16. It's a cute retelling of the princess and the pea but I'm just not too fond of the two books in this series that I've read. The characters feel shallow, and I like for my fairy tale retellings to make the original make more sense.

    17. So clever and cute! Wonderful expansion of a typically basic fairy tale. So much much fleshed-out, and very enjoyable!!

    18. In the interest of perfect honesty, I will confess that I have never read Hans Christian Anderson's The Princess and the Pea. In fact, prior to reading the summary (which I did just before sitting down to write this review), all I knew of the story was that there was a princess who for some reason or other had a pea under her mattress.Speaking from personal experience, I advise anyone who is planning to read The Princess Test to familiarize themselves with at least a summary of Anderson's tale. [...]

    19. It's been a while since I've read this so bear with. I absoloutely adore this book. I had it in a 'two tales' edition, the other being 'The Fairy's Mistake' and these books, along with 'Ella Enchanted' cements Levine as a favourite writer for me. This book is a darker version of the fairytale the Princess and the Pea, as our protagonist (the precocious and fussy Lorelei) is constantly trying to be sabotaged, harmed and just plain old killed by the new maid her father has hired to look after the [...]

    20. In the town of Snettering-on-Snoakes Lorelei is a young girl with allergies of all sorts, and catches every illness. Lorelei is constantly taken care of by her mother before she had died, and after she died Lorelei’s father wasn’t home, so he hired a woman named Trudy to take care of Lorelei and their home. While figuring out that Lorelei either breaks everything she touches, or hurts herself on it, Trudy becomes enormously frustrated and plans to get rid of Lorelei once and for all - by kil [...]
