The Paper Bag Princess
a prince is kidnapped by a dangerous dragon, and the dragon's breath burns up all the clothes in the palace. The princess who loves the prince can only find a paper bag to wear when she goes to rescue her love. Cleverly tricking the dragon, she enters the cave where the prince, still beautifully dressed, is held captive. Is true love rewarded? No! He at once complains she's "a disaster" badly dressed, dirty and all messed up. She replies that he is a fine and handsome prince--but completely useless. "And, in the end, they didn't marry."

I've always thought of myself as the princess Elizabeth. I've never learned how to play the damsel in distress. I want to teach my girls to be self-sufficient and independent too, while looking for the prince who is worthy of them, not a 'bum' like prince Ralph!
This is a book I give to new parents of girls!
Review: The Paper Bag PrincessUser Review - Emily - Goodreads
I loved this book! It was so full of the unexpected, and I think that it would be fun to read to children. The artwork is lovely to look at, and in the end the princess is able to let girls know that you don't need to be with a man if he is a bum! Read full review
