  1. I can still hear my grandmother reading this to us. I have always loved this story. I don’t know why, because I have also always thought the princess was kind of whiny. Memories sure get tangled up.

    1. The story starts a chain of thinking – if she can feel the pea, how does she get through the day without going crazy from all the uncomfortable things around . . .
