I enjoyed your story, and I thought you did a good job with it. I thought this was a fun contest to enter. Have a great day!

You may want to look at your prepositional/ conditional phrases particularly at the beginning of sentences. Also, the use of coordinating conjunctions and the way to punctuate them.

Take care,
Russell

    Thanks for the tips. I will edit and take a look at it again. Sometimes I get in too big of a hurry.

Oh I just loved it. Very nicely done. You put your own spin on a classic tale and have created a winner. Although your description of the cat does not match that of Garfield, I feel Sir Gawain would get along well with him. Nicely done.

Cute story! To be totally frank, I wasn't sure where you were going at the start, but by the conclusion (and the pea) I found myself really enjoying your yarn :) Equally impressive that you hurried this out in such short order!

Even though the story is good, it's marred by a few "bad" sentences (for example, "There was always something that wasn't satisfactory such as bad breath, a shrill voice, or maybe the princess in question was beautiful, (all princesses are in folklore), but still he wasn't sure they were authentic.")

Fortunately, the the "good" (like, "I hid under the bed and hoped the pig-headed chit would forget about me and go by herself, but no such luck.") outweigh the "bad".

Great job.

    Thank you for taking the time to read and review. I appreciate any and all input. I agree with you, that one sentence should have been eliminated.

well, I think you did an admirable job, on the fly or not. Original, from the cat's POV. I was ready to read more - wanted to see how she handled her new fam, etc. Didn't noticed any errors was so fascinated with the story. good job,

The story was read to me by my third grade teacher. I didn't care for it then and I not particular about it today. This is very well written with a smooth flow of words, making for a very good read.

    Thank you. It was never my favorite fairy tale either. I think it sounds better my way. LOL

Hi there. I enjoyed reading this dear little tale. At five hundred pairs Annabelle has even more shoes than my wife. LOL

I like it, a Furry Tale told from a cat's perspective. I didn't see any errors in this write.
Good luck with the contest.

Cute story about the noble cat, Sir Gawain, and his beautiful, if a bit spoiled princess.

Good to know the perceptive cat and his actress sidekick princess were able to pull off the scheme and set themselves up in a good situation.

Great story,
Rhonda

This work has reached the exceptional level

I thoroughly enjoyed this take on the princess and the pea. The point of the view of the cat was original and fit the attitude of the typical cat well. I was in no hurry to finish and get my review points because I was enjoying the story.

In paragraph 4, I suggest changing the "No" to "no" or "NO" in this sentence - "As I said, No one told my Princess Annabelle no and got away with it."

Bravo! I loved it. I have written a few fractured Fairy Tales of my own. My favorite is on the site, it is titled "Little Red Riding In the Hood", you should check it out if you've a mind to. This is very amusing and I believe that it happened just as it was told.

This speaks a true story in a very realistic and expressive way, the princess was to be real, prince was to marry a real one, marathon interrogations went on, end is pathetic; I like. DR ALCREATOR
