      Reviews

      “One of my children’s favourites was always Robert Munsch’s The Paper Bag Princess . . . There is nothing more subversively empowering than reciting from memory those great last lines, when the enterprising Princess Elizabeth rescues the ghastly and feeble Prince Ronald from the dragon – and then dumps him: ‘“You look like a nice guy, but guess what? You are a bum.” And they didn’t get married after all.’ There’s power for you, in a nutshell.”


      “[Elizabeth’s] confidence has inspired girls everywhere and will continue to do so with this beautiful special edition of the classic book.”


      “Readers of all ages can still appreciate the charming art style, and the heartfelt message of this book. It will appeal to new readers, and those of us basking in nostalgia alike.”


      “All the wonderful extras are just icing on the cake because the real pleasure here is the chance to enjoy Munsch’s fantastic feminist fairy tale, as powerful today as it was when it was published in 1980, in this big beautiful new hardcover edition with new art by Martchenko (and a poster on the inside of the book jacket).”


      “This is one of those stories that will live on forever, and that will always be relevant to all readers, regardless of age and gender. It has the power to evoke a sense of who we want to be and what we are capable of.”


      “Elizabeth, the fearless heroine, continues to inspire children all over the world to recognise their self-worth, stand up for themselves and not let anyone or anything drag them down.”

      “Some of the best children’s books ever written have been about girls . . . like The Paper Bag Princess.”


      “Before we even knew what the word ‘feminist’ was, the titular character of Robert Munsch’s The Paper Bag Princess was there to inspire us to become one. Fierce, smart, and bold, Princess Elizabeth . . . [shows] girls everywhere that not all girls are damsels in distress—plenty of them are heroes, too.”


      [T]his morning I searched my mother’s basement for The Paper Bag Princess, and though my daughters are sixteen months old, that is where I will begin. I will read it to them and I hope over time that they will learn Princess Elizabeth’s lessons: Adventure and be fearless. Stand up to dragons. Defend yourself with all you have. Walk away from any man who treats you with disrespect. You, yourself, alone, are enough, and more than enough.


      “A perfect lesson in emancipation and self-confidence.”


      “If ever there were a book with the most perfect plot twist, this could be it . . . This princess tale is short and sweet and funny, and empowers young girls to be true to themselves . . . a classic picture book that packs a real punch to the “princess” genre!”


      “We can thank Robert Munsch for his gender-breaking book and celebrate its message.”


      “An entertaining read that champions strong, independent, and intelligent girls.”


      “This is an extremely popular children’s book . . . that needs a resurgence! It has sold over 7 million copies and gained an endorsement from the National Organization for Women.”
