Ten top re-imagined fairytales

Elli Woollard is the author of The Giant of Jum, illustrated by Benji Davies. One of her ten top re-imagined fairytales, as shared at the Guardian:
The Princess and the Peas by Caryl Hart and Sarah Warburton

When Lily-Rose May refuses to eat her peas and lets the world know about it VERY loudly, her dad decides that enough is enough. Declaring her to be suffering from a horrible case of princess-itus, he sends her packing to the royal palace to see if having to live the life of a real princess might cure her. A lovely rhyming story that pays humorous homage to the original Princess and the Pea tale.
