Summary: The Paper Bag Princess is a trailblazer in gender-bending story books. This wonderfully illustrated picture book uses humour to retell the classic 'prince and princess' story. Boys and girls will get a chance to meet a princess who decides that when faced with a dragon problem, she isn't going to wait around for a prince to save her. In the end Princess Elizabeth decides that she doesn't want very much to do with a prince who thinks that girls should never get dirty.
