Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Book for Young Girls I LOVE this book! Not only is a classic, and by the amazing Canadian author Munsch, but this book is a great story about a young girl, who doesn't accept that she has to look pretty for a prince, and who does not accept that a prince has to save her. She wears what she wants, and she fights for herself and she saves herself! This is a great book to show children the value of being independent, and doing what is best for you, and not wanting to impress other people.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great encouragement for little girls This story has a female main character children will love. The princess is supposed to marry a prince, and they both are very particular about how they dress. When a dragon comes and burns down the castle and all the princess owns - even her wardrobe - and carries off the prince, the princess decides immediately she has to rescue him. All she can find to wear is a large paper bag. She finds the dragon, outsmarts him and rescues the prince. This is especially encouraging for little girls so they can see they are just as brave and smart as boys. The ending is funny, and shows how appearances can mean too much - in more than one way.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch, Michael Martchenko I have been reading most of Robert Munsch’s books ever since I was a child and I have enjoyed most of his work! I have recently re-read a book and 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 most hilarious books ever written! I'm not a raging feminist, but I am a huge believer in a girl knowing that she can rescue herself and anyone else who needs it - if they want her help. This book reinforces how to be resourceful, have confidence, and know when to walk away.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great addition to any collection This book is a great collection to any reader's collection, though more importantly with children. It changes the conversation and presents a female "hero" rather than a damsel in distress. Though, I do believe belittling the male character is not a great example, I praise it for pitching a new view on "princess" stories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I loved this book when I was a kid!! The strong female character, the dragon, the adventure! Everything was in this book, and as a kid I remember thinking that it couldn't get better than this. Must read. You'll look back on this book when you're older and will definitely smile!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kids and parents will love it This book is fantastic. It has a great, strong, female character who breaks out of the princess mold plus there's a dragon so boys and girls alike will love reading this book. It's a great way to encourage the thinking that girls don't need to grow up and marry a prince to be complete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have As a child, this was my go-to book of choice. I purchased it for my son recently and he had me read it at least, three times a day. Now, he reads it to me. He's just begun learning to read and this book, was a great starter for him. The vibrant illustrations, mixed with the humorous tale, invites children and adults alike, into a grand world of imagination.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Paper Bag Princess A funny switch from the typical roles of a prince and princess in old tales. This princess has got wit, determination and knows when a snotty prince doesn't deserve her.
