The Paper Bag Princess by Robert N. Munsch (pictures by Michael Martchenko) is a short picture book containing a determined heroine. Elizabeth had it all: she was beautiful, had expensive clothes, and she was going to marry a handsome prince. That is, until the day the dragon came. The dragon had the temerity to burn up everything she had and carry off Prince Ronald. Elizabeth is annoyed. The only thing that she can find to wear is a paper bag. Undaunted, she goes after that darn Dragon. What happens next is both clever and funny. Yes, once again, my favorite part of this book is the end. I actually cheered a bit. Nope, I’m not going to tell you what happens. The art is simple, yet cute. I liked it, but it’s not the sort of thing that I would frame. Elizabeth is a heroine that will particularly appeal to young girls. If I were prone to giving out stars for ratings, I would give The Paper Bag Princess three out of five stars for a light, enjoyable story.
