Editorial Reviews

Review

In this new board book version, the original story of The Paper Bag Princess is shorter and simplified for preschool readers. Michael Martchenko's original pictures also illustrate the story in this edition for young readers. Munsch's plot and the humour remain intact in this new version, and toddlers will still enjoy the classic lines, "But you are a BUM!" Readers will also take pleasure in the different coloured and sized fonts as well as illustrations within the text which are interspersed throughout the book. This makes telling the story to youngsters fun and also helps emergent readers follow along as they listen to the story. A board book format for this new version is ideal as this is a story which will be read again and again and will be able to last for years of enjoyment. This simplified board book version of The Paper Bag Princess introduces preschoolers to the magical world of stories by Robert Munsch. Like the original, this version will be sure to charm young children
and is a must-have for any preschool library. Highly Recommended. (Kristen Ferguson Canadian Materials 2010-01-08)
