Detective Princess King is hot on the trail to find a priceless emerald known as the “pea”, which has disappeared from Mrs. Snell’s jewelry collection.

Princess must use all her sleuthing skills to solve the crime and prove she’s the best private investigator in town! Hans Christian Anderson’s classic tale “The Princess and the Pea” gets a more modern telling with some twists you never saw coming. This volume as well as the others in the Far Out Fairy Tale series belongs in graphic novel collections and middle school libraries everywhere.
