Envision a kingdom of snow where the residents are Winter Wind
Workers, Blizzard Bringers, Icicle Sharpeners and Snow Smoothers,
ruled by the Storm King and the Snow Queen. Add to that a Prince
looking for a proper Princess to share the throne. Now imagine the
Princess and her friend the Pea living in a kingdom of green rolling
hills and running rivers with her subjects, The Flower Gardeners,
River Runners, Green Shoot Growers and Tree Barkers. Her parents, King
Size and Queen Size, do all they can to keep things running smoothly.
Who knows, maybe the dancing Dust Bunnies can help?
Although the two kingdoms think they have nothing in common, (except
maybe a pesky Jack Frost that freezes anything and everything), the
peace-loving Leprechauns prove otherwise. Throw in some Phony
Princesses and you have a real fiasco! This ain’t your grandma’s
Princess and the Pea. We think you will enjoy its twists and turns.
