Once upon a time there was a prince called Henrik who wanted very much to fall in love and get married. He was an outdoorsy type, and hoped that the princess he married would like hockey and camping. And so Prince Henrik came up with a plan. Whenever a princess came to stay, he offered to make up the guest room. Instead of twenty mattresses, Henrik found one thin camping mattress. Instead of twenty eiderdowns, Henrik found one old sleeping bag. And instead of one single pea, the prince decided to use a whole packet of frozen peas.
