Summer Reading With Daisy: The Paper Bag Princess

The Paper Bag Princess is another fun book by Robert Munsch. It is fairy tale-ish, with familiar characters...and a big twist!
"Princess Elizabeth was a beautiful princess."  She was going to marry perfect Prince Ronald.
A dragon destroyed the castle, prince-napped Ronald, and burned off Princess Elizabeth's clothes!  There was only one thing not burned by the dragon - a paper bag.  Princess Elizabeth put it on and followed the dragon in order to save the prince.
The dragon loved to breathe fire and was a little too self confident.  Elizabeth tricks him so she can rescue Prince Ronald.
When Princess Elizabeth rescues the prince, instead of being happy, he tells her she's filthy!  The not so prince-ly prince tells her to come back when she's dressed like a real princess.
The ending is the BIG twist and makes all the kids cheer.
Michael Martchenko illustrated this book, like so many other Robert Munsch books.  I have to say, this is one of my favorite Munsch books!
Happy Reading!


  1. Hope da Princess kicks Prince Ronald in da bootie for dat one!

  2. Fantastic book. SHE gives it to all the little girls born into our extended family. SHE thinks all little girls should have it read to them. Boooooo Prince Ronald.

  3. Hey Daisy!
    Wow, you look so adorable and I love your crown! Perfect for you. Reading is such a great time to snuggle up with our peeps.

  4. Does end with Prince Ronald turning into a jackass and Princess Elizabeth rides away beating her ass. That would be a happy ending for someone being mean.

    Aroo to you,
