    It’s so important for children to be exposed to feminism through their reads The Paper Bag Princess you did a good job showing the princess isn’t always the one who needs saving so we should stop assuming that

    The beautiful Princess Elizabeth lives in a castle and is engaged to marry Prince Ronald One day a fire breathing dragon destroys her castle incinerates her belongings then flies away with Ronald Since all her clothes are ruined Princess Elizabeth dons a paper bag and sets off to save her prince Elizabeth decided to chase the dragon and get Ronald back She looked everywhere for something to wear but the only thing she could find that was not burnt was a paper bag So she put on the paper bag and followed the dragon He was easy to follow because he left a trail of burnt forests and horses’ bones Princess Elizabeth is a daring female protagonist; a superb role model for little ones She takes matters into her own hands and outsmarts the dragon in a game of wits When she reaches Ronald he’s an ungrateful snot and is disappointed with her physical appearance Without hesitation he verbalizes his disgust He looked at her and said “Elizabeth you are a mess 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”In a twist ending that glimmers with female empowerment Elizabeth view spoilerrealizes Ronald is not all he’s cracked up to be and decides not to marry him after all hide spoiler

    The 40th Anniversary Edition includes bonus content that includes a short one page Note to Readers from Chelsea Clinton explaining the meaning of the story to her and its importance in her life Next is a two page article by Francesca Segal called Stand Up To Dragons In this two page article Francesca Segal proves the timelessness of the story and its relevance today She includes examples such as the #MeToo movement misogyny and cronyism In the end of the book there is a two page bonus from Ann Munsch with Robert Munsch entitled 40 Years of the Paper Bag Princess in which they recollect how the story came to be created Book summary Elizabeth and Ronald are preparing to marry but a dragon comes and takes Ronald away Leaving everything burnt and destroyed but a paper bag Elizabeth transforms the paper bag into a dress and goes to rescue Prince Ronald She gets to the dragons lair and persuades him to come out to see her She outsmarts the dragon and tires him out which allows her to rescue Ronald Upon seeing Elizabeth's ashy and dirty state Ronald points out that she looks mess and tells her Come back when you are dressed like a real princess Elizabeth doesn't stand for this and responds by telling him that he is pretty and a prince but a bum It then ends with an illustration of Elizabeth running off into the sunset with glee since they did not get married after that The Paper Bag Princess explores gender roles; instead of the prince rescuing the princess the princess is rescuing the prince Rather than the prince defeating the dragon the princess not only defeats the dragon but she does so by outsmarting him It also shows kids that it is okay to stand up for yourself And in the end it reveals that beauty is than skin deep and that we do not need someone else to be happy or valuableI received an advanced copy from Netgalley Opinions are my ownMore on thisPaper Bag Princess read by Robert Munsch 4 min 10 secRobert MunschStand Up to Dragons Re reading the Paper Bag Princess Francesca Segal The Story Behind the Classic by Huffington Post

    Why have I never heard of Robert Munsch before? This is from 1980 and it's serious girl power This princess is in love with the prince She learns uickly he's not worth her love and she MOVES on I mean this is revolutionary All girls need to grow up reading this story It is fantastic Robert is on my list of authors to read so I will be going through his books This was a fantastic story The kids enjoyed it too with dragons and princesses I like this princess she has worth This is my bailiwick I adore this story

    It is never too early to teach girls to not settle and to save the prince Even if Ronald is a pathetic prince

    My students did not enjoy this book They thought it was super annoying

  8. Kathryn Kathryn says:

    I give this three stars because it was originally written in 1980 when there wasn't as much in the way of feminist fairy tales as there are today so gotta give Munsch props for that I like that our heroine is plucky and resourceful However two things really bugged me SPOILERS 1st was it Ronald or Elizabeth who was being false before she came to rescue him ie did she originally pretend to be a proper princess or was he just hiding his jerky ness? Their split seemed a bit sudden though I can't blame her2nd did one of Elizabeth's methods for exhausting the dragon really have to involve burning dozens of forests? I know this was written nearly thirty years ago but certainly even then it was distressing for a dragon to destroy hundreds of trees and potentially harm lots of wildlife living there I know that is reading a lot into the story but still I guess I'm just disappointed as I wanted to like this SO much as I know it's really popular

    When I was growing up The Paper Bag Princess was one of my go to books I'm not kidding I knew that story inside out and could recite it without the book As I got older I lost that ability to recite this book without hesitation but the memories are still there This book holds a special place in my heart Robert Munsch is a geniusSo as the story suggests there is a Princess Her name is Elizabeth She is beautiful lives in a big fancy castle is engaged to Ronald and has everything her heart could desire And then a dragon comes along and ruins everything like most girl's everyday life obviously Prince Ronald has been carried away and all of her belongings are gone So like most girls these days she put on her best paper bag and went off to save the Prince And how will she battle this wretched dragon? With her smartsThis story gave me Shrek vibes before I even watched Shrek It's not your average fairy tale and it's uite amusing Elizabeth is a sassy yet relatable girl with some interesting yet amusing problems I love that the Princess is the hero and this is 40 years old so Princesses weren't always kicking butt and taking names like they do today and that she's wicked smart I also love that in the end she stands up for herself and doesn't do what's expected of her This book definitely added in to my spunky behaviour as an adult The art work doesn't connect with me as much as it did when I was a kid Of course my style and preferences has changed but I still think the pictures work with the story As always the cover is what really stuck with me I did like the forewards in this book Chelsea Clinton and Francesca Segal share some sweet stories that I connect with This book is a special part of childhood history for many people so it was nice to see it wasn't just me who was obsessed with this bookOverall this is still one of my must read books I'm glad this book is still circulating around and I hope many girls pick up this butt kicking book and share it with the worldFive out of five stars I'd give it if possibleThank you to NetGalley and Annick Press Ltd for letting me travel back to my youth with this arc review Seriously I can hear my reading buddies chanting Hey Dragon Hey Dragon

    I have been reading most of Robert Munsch and Michael Martchenko’s works ever since I was a child and I have enjoyed most of their works I have recently re read a book from the popular duo that I had enjoyed during my childhood called “The Paper Bag Princess” and it is about how a princess is stripped down to wearing a plain paper bag when a dragon attacks her castle and she has to go rescue Prince Ronald who has been kidnapped by the dragon “The Paper Bag Princess” is definitely one of Robert Munsch’s and Michael Martchenko’s most hilarious books ever writtenElizabeth was a beautiful princess who was going to marry Prince Ronald One day however a dragon comes by and burns her castle to the ground and kidnaps Prince Ronald With nothing left to wear except for a paper bag Elizabeth decides to go after the dragon and save RonaldIf you think that “Stephanie’s Ponytail” was one hilarious and creative book you should really check this book out Robert Munsch has truly done an awesome job at writing this story about how a princess loses everything but still wanted to save the love of her life Robert Munsch’s writing is simple yet sassy and hilarious at the same time and what I really loved about this book was that Robert Munsch made the heroine Elizabeth into a clever and brave girl and I loved the way that she tries to go and rescue the prince by herself even though she lost everything that she owned and the way that she beats the dragon at its own game is just truly hilarious Michael Martchenko’s illustrations are creative and hilarious in this book especially of the images of Elizabeth being in a paper bag throughout the book The images in this book are a bit simplistic in this book than in Robert Munsch’s and Michael Martchenko’s later books as the black outlines of the characters make the characters stand out much I also loved the images of the dragon itself as it is green have red spikes down its back and always look suave than terrifying to the readersAll in all “The Paper Bag Princess” is a brilliant book from the famous MunschMartchenko duo as it shows that true courage will always win the day Although I would have preferred the ending to be a little longer so that way it would be satisfying just knowing what happened to each character after the adventure is over this was not a major con for me so I would still recommend this book to children ages four and up but because of the dragon scenes I think children ages five and older might stand those scenes better and the children ages four and up will like the simplistic writing of this bookReview is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog
