The best book for aspiring princesses. A twist on the classic damsel in distress, this princess doesn't need a man, or a fancy dress for that matter. I loved this book as a little girl and I'd like to think it helped me be a feisty, do-it-yourself type of person. Shout out to my dad if he's reading this! Recommended By Melanie L., Powells.com
Synopses & Reviews
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.
