A modern classic with revised text in a fun new format for young children.

The Paper Bag Princess hardly needs an introduction. First published in 1980 and with over four million copies in print, this story of a feisty princess and her hapless prince has captured the hearts of readers young and old all around the world. The New York Times called it one "of the best children's books ever written," and it has appeared countless times on best books lists across North America.

While retaining the original storyline with all its humor and panache, a revised text for 2- to 4-year-olds makes this version appropriate for preschoolers. The sturdy board-book format is perfect for little hands.

Parents and grandparents who believe that it's never too early to introduce kids to stories that excite, make them smile and showcase self-esteem will be delighted that they can now share this all-time favorite with even the youngest child.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Paper Bag Princess i love Robert Munsch!! this is a wonderful book to curl up with your kids or sister or brother. it doesn't matter how old you are you will love this book! instead of the usual fair tail where the prince saves the princes and they live happily ever after it's the princess who faces the dragon and is forcer to where a paper bag because her cloths burnt. but what happens when the prince sees this Paper Bag Princess? i guess you'll have to read and find out!
