Based on the classic tale by Hans Christian Andersen, this clever version uses pictures from a doll house to illustrate the story.  The king and queen are searching for a proper wife for their son.  When a beautiful young woman takes shelter in the castle, the queen tests her by having the servants prepare a bed with 12 mattresses on top.  She then puts one tiny little pea underneath the bottom mattress.  If the young woman can feel the pea, she can marry the prince.
SUBJECTS:     Fairy tales.
