|Origin of Princess and the Pea|
Hey, does anyone happen to know a website which would tell me of the origin of the fairy tale, "Princess and the Pea"? If so, if it's possible let me know ASAP because it's due tomorrow for English. Thanks soo much!

I'm pretty certain this was a "fairy tale" composed by Hans Christian Anderson. If you pop in the title in a search engine there are a few nice sites, complete with Dulac illustrations that pop up.
