The Paper Bag Princess
First published in 1980 and with over four million copies in print, The Paper Bag Princess (the story of a resourceful princess and her useless prince) has captured the hearts of readers young and old all around the world. The New York Times called it ""one of the best children's books ever written"" and it has appeared countless times on ""best books"" lists. The story reverses the ""princess and dragon"" folklore stereotype and celebrates feisty females everywhere, making it a firm favourite with female readers of all ages, as well as women's groups, teachers and librarians.
One of the best princess stories ever told, Elizabeth turns the princess stereotype on its head, empowering young girls to be true to themselves.--Elizabeth Shaffer"BC Parent" (10/01/2005)
