Author Biography

Mini Grey was given her name after being born in a Mini Cooper automobile in Wales. She studied art and then worked as a theater designer and elementary school teacher before devoting full time to writing and illustrating picture books.

Flap Cover Text

When it comes to sorting out a Real Princess from a Fake Princess, the famous pea-under-the-mattress test is tried-and-true. But for those who may have wondered how anyone could feel a tiny garden-variety pea under the weight of 20 mattresses, this book will put that question to rest once and for all. Mini Grey’s clever picture book reveals the inside story of the famous Princess and Pea fairy tale through the memoirs of the unlikely heroine, the Pea. The setting is contemporary (with a Queen who must surely be related to the current monarch of England), but the humor is timeless. This witty spoof introduces Mini Grey who, we predict, will grow on you! - (Random House, Inc.)
