Editorial Reviews

Review

“Some of the best children’s books ever written have been about girls . . . like The Paper Bag Princess.”

(The New York Times)

“Before we even knew what the word ‘feminist’ was, the titular character of Robert Munsch’s The Paper Bag Princess was there to inspire us to become one. Fierce, smart, and bold, Princess Elizabeth . . . [shows] girls everywhere that not all girls are damsels in distress—plenty of them are heroes, too.” 

(Bustle)

[T]his morning I searched my mother’s basement for The Paper Bag Princess, and though my daughters are sixteen months old, that is where I will begin. I will read it to them 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. 

(Francesca Segal, The Hairpin)

“A perfect lesson in emancipation and self-confidence.” 

(The Indian Express, 10/14/18)

“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!” 

(The Children’s Book Review, 05/18/18)

“We can thank Robert Munsch for his gender-breaking book and celebrate its message.”

(The Virginian-Pilot, 03/15/20) --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Amazon.com Review

Elizabeth, a beautiful princess, lives in a castle and wears fancy clothes. Just when she is about to marry Prince Ronald, a dragon smashes her castle, burns her clothes with his fiery breath, and prince-naps her dear Ronald. Undaunted and presumably unclad, she dons a large paper bag and sets off to find the dragon and her cherished prince. Once she's tracked down the rascally reptile, she flatters him into performing all sorts of dragonly stunts that eventually exhaust him, allowing her to rescue Prince Ronald. But what does Prince Not-So-Charming say when he sees her? "You smell like ashes, your hair is all tangled and you are wearing a dirty old paper bag. Come back when you are dressed like a real princess." (At least he has the courtesy not to mention that the princess's crown resembles a dying sea anemone.) In any case, let's just say that Princess Elizabeth and Prince Ronald do not, under any circumstances, live happily ever after. Canadian author Robert Munsch celebrates feisty females everywhere with this popular favorite, and Michael Martchenko's scratchy, comical, pen-and-ink drawings capture the tongue-in-cheek quality of this read-aloud crowd pleaser. (Ages 4 to 8) --Karin Snelson --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ant sized book!
By Jessica Rigsbee on September 21, 2017
SO SMALL. I apparently bought the postage stamp version of this book. Banana for scale.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good book BUT TINY (not like the original)
By Bay Area Reviewer on December 24, 2017
Good book but tiny size. It should be stated more clearly in the title. In fact, the picture of the book shown is the original (which I have) and not what is received. Hence I was very surprised when I got such a tiny book. (See my the picture for the original vs what is received). As I see now that there is a second picture that shows its size but the first picture looks just like the full size original that I had. I also now see there were several reviews by people having the same problem and missing the second photo

Another thing I noticed is there have been some changes in wording which I think are not for the better.
