Editorial Reviews

Review

“One of my children’s favourites was always Robert Munsch’s The Paper Bag Princess …. There is nothing more subversively empowering than reciting from memory those great last lines, when the enterprising Princess Elizabeth rescues the ghastly and feeble Prince Ronald from the dragon – and then dumps him: “‘You look like a nice guy, but guess what? You are a bum.’ And they didn’t get married after all.” There’s power for you, in a nutshell.



"I will always be grateful for Elizabeth's bravery, and for the way she shows us that dragons can be defeated, that we can rescue ourselves, and that we don't need to sacrifice our kindness or goodness to do so."



"This is deeply satisfying to the children I read it to, and to me as an adult as well. She's clever, she's brave and she refuses to subordinate herself. The well placed use of the word "bum" adds a nice bit of levity to the ending."



"If ever there were a book with the most perfect plot twist, this could be it . . . This princess tale is short and sweet and funny and empowers young girls to be true to themselves . . . a classic picture book that packs a real punch to the "princess" genre!"



"I will read [The Paper Bag Princess] to [my daughters] and I hope over time that they will learn Princess Elizabeth's lessons: Adventure and be fearless. Stand up to dragons. Defend yourself with all you have. Walk away from any man who treats you with disrespect. You, yourself, alone, are enough, and more than enough."



"Best. Book. Ever."
