The Princess and The Peanut: A Royally Allergic Fairytale joins a classic fairytale with a serious medical problem. Inspired by her daughter'??s life-threatening peanut allergy, author Sue Ganz-Schmitt, wrote the book to help children with food allergies feel more accepted while also educating others that may not understand this condition.

Nearly 6 million children in the U.S. have food allergies, according to a recent study published in the journal Pediatrics, and peanut allergies are the most common. The Princess and the Peanutis a light-hearted story about a peanut butter loving Prince who is searching for a real princess. He discovers, only after putting a peanut under her mattress, that not only is she a real princess, she is allergic to peanuts too. Like all fairytale endings, the Prince and Princess get married and live happily ever after (in a peanut-free environment). The book also contains gorgeous illustrations that are captivating for both kids and their parents.
