The Princess and the Pig has an awesome ending! The princess had her OWN happy ending because she doesn't have to be a princess after all. She gets to marry for love too. The story is clever and the fairy tale references are comical. My husband and I both like reading this one to our little girls. The artwork is great too!
So about the "Paper Bag Princess" by Munsch; A MUST HAVE BOOK for all little girls! Smart, witty, resourceful and such a strong little lady, Princess Elizabeth is my 4 year old's favorite princess. She constantly reinacts the book. If you prefer hardcover books like I do, the one from Amazon with the library binding is really nice!http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0920236820/ref=oh_details_o06_s00_i00
The illustrations are bright and beautiful and funny to complement the text. My favorite parts were the little asides to the audience of readers about the absurd yet commonplace transformations that occur in fairy tales. Very fun.
The day the queen didn't notice that she dropped her baby daughter off of the castle's battlements could have been horrific. Instead, it led to a case of switched identities.Read more ›

This book was a miss in our house. Not even the four year old liked it. I'd return it if I hadn't gotten rid of the dust jacket already. Shocked that it gets so many good reviews.Published 5 months ago by HGTM
My granddaughter and I enjoyed this book. A bit of surprise ending, as the princess lived happily ever after, of course.Published 6 months ago by JJ
Love it, it's a cute story, with cool references to other classic tales. It's on several list of 'anti-princess' books, and this one is actually a good one.Published 6 months ago by J. Howlett
