When Jade was eight years old, she came home from school one day with this very picture. She painted it after hearing Hans Christian Andersen’s story; The Princess and the Pea. I was so impressed by her art, but even more astonished by her thoughts– Jade didn’t understand why the princess had to prove she was proper, yet the prince did not. I agreed entirely. To be fair, we decided to revamp the classic, so the prince is tested too…and boy, is he ever!
