Read eBook ☆ The Paper Bag Princess Paperback  Robert Munsch ã The Princess Elizabeth is slated to marry Prince Ronald when a dragon attacks the castle and kidnaps Ronald In resourceful and humorous fashion Elizabeth finds the dragon outsmarts him and rescues Ronald who is less than pleased at her un prinIm and rescues Ronald who is less than pleased at her un princess like appearance Full colo I give this three stars because it was originally written in 1980 when there wasn't as much in the way of feminist fairy tales as there are today so gotta give Munsch props for that I like that our heroine is plucky and resourceful However two things really bugged me SPOILERS 1st was it Ronald or Elizabeth who was being false before she came to rescue him ie did she originally pretend to be a proper princess or was he just hiding his jerky ness? Their split seemed a bit sudden though I can't blame her2nd did one of Elizabeth's methods for exhausting the dragon really have to involve burning dozens of forests? I know this was written nearly thirty years ago but certainly even then it was distressing for a dragon to destroy hundreds of trees and potentially harm lots of wildlife living there I know that is reading a lot into the story but still I guess I'm just disappointed as I wanted to like this SO much as I know it's really popular
