This review is by Class 3/2 from Westfield First School Hertfordshire
The Paperbag princess is an adventurous story for all ages! The story is funny, with lots of action and it is not like any other Princess story because Elizabeth is very brave and clever. We start in a castle and end in a cave. You will have to see if it is a 'happy ever after' by reading the book yourself.

Princess Elizabeth is a modern day gal in love in the good old fashioned way with Prince Ronald until the dastardly dragon burns her castle to the ground and carries off her beloved. Despite everything she owns being burnt to ashes, she dons a paper bag and sets off to find the dragon and free Ronald. With great cunning Elizabeth outwits the conceited dragon and releases Ronald, only to be told that he is not interested in her as she is not dressed in her regal finery and smells of smoke. Elizabeth, unlike the Prince, is able to see beyond the superficial and therefore decides that she won't marry him after all. The story is suitable to be read to children of around 5-7 age group, younger girls tend to be a little confused at the non-traditional ending. The tale is told with great wit, the characterization of the dragon is superb and the illustrations are delightful. This is altogether one of those rare gems; a story a parent can enjoy reading as much as the kids enjoy hearing it.

Great book. My three year old loves it, which I'm very glad about, as it stars a confident, clever princess who saves the prince she loves. The prince is, in my daughter's words, "really very rude" on being saved, so she dumps him.

We talk about it, and she understands the main messages - you don't have to put up with abuse and that women can be clever, brave heroes who save the day.

This is a book that I buy for every friend who has a newborn girl. There are great messages about self-esteem, being resourceful and brave, and liking yourself just the way you are. It's one of my very favorite books ever. Great to encourage independent thinking in little girls.

The book disposes of the stereotype princess and teaches that girls can be resourceful and brave without losing their femininity. Children will love it from age three and appreciate the humour as they grow older

As opposed to 'I hate it', the 5 year old I bought it for didn't like it. I think she found some of the wording strange, e.g. 'bum' at the end, as it's American.

A shame, as I'd read other reviews on here and had hoped she'd enjoy it. Don't think it will get a 2nd read, and she's an avid reader.

This is an all time favourite, a great little story well illustrated. If you have a young daughter, buy it for her. If you don't, buy it anyway. OK, it's a PC tale, even to the extent that no dragons are harmed, but the final page brings a smile every time.

This book is fantastic, the message in it is clear. I have read many reviews on this (prior to buying) which say this is a must read for girls. I'd say indeed it is, but equally so for our sons to read. The message is clear and doesn't have to be genderised. The value of a person is in their actions not in their attire or social position.
