The Paper Bag Princess

What it is about:

When the fiercest dragon in the whole world smashes Princess Elizabeth’s castle, burns all her clothes, and captures her fiancé, Prince Ronald, Elizabeth takes matters into her own hands. With her wits alone and nothing but a paper bag to wear, the princess challenges the dragon to show his strength in the hopes of saving the prince. But is it worth all that trouble?

Why we love it:

A strong, brave princess rescues the prince and figures out that appearances are absolutely not everything. 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!
