Editorial Reviews

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

The New York Times

“A great girl-power story.”

FamilyFun Magazine

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

People Magazine

“A classic feminist picture book.”

Montreal Gazette

“Witty, vibrant and original.”

The Globe and Mail

“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
