Editorial Reviews

“A great girl-power story.”

— FamilyFun Magazine

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

— The New York Times

Included in “Louise Erdrich’s 10 Favorite Books to Read to Kids.”

— People Magazine

“A classic feminist picture book.”

— Montreal Gazette

“This humorous story sends an assuring message to readers about women’s (and girls) potential to break through sex-role stereotyping. This book, a pioneer of a slowly growing genre of non-traditional prince and princess stories, introduces a positive image of an empowered woman for children and adults alike.”

— Electronic Magazine of Multicultural Education

“Witty, vibrant and original.”

— The Globe and Mail
