A great little story that sets the "damsel in distress" storyline on it's ear ( )

A princess and her fiance (a prince) are attacked by a dragon. The castle is destroyed, her clothes are destroyed and the prince is carted off. The princess finds a paper bag and goes the dragons lair. She defeats the dragon by wearing him out and rescues the prince. Except the prince is upset b/c the princess doesn't look very princessy anymore, so they don't get married b/c the princess just isn't having it.

Fun illustrations! Lots of text, better for an older kids story time. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0920236162, Paperback)

Elizabeth, a beautiful princess, lives in a castle and wears fancy clothes. Just when she is about to marry Prince Ronald, a dragon smashes her castle, burns her clothes with his fiery breath, and prince-naps her dear Ronald. Undaunted and presumably unclad, she dons a large paper bag and sets off to find the dragon and her cherished prince. Once she's tracked down the rascally reptile, she flatters him into performing all sorts of dragonly stunts that eventually exhaust him, allowing her to rescue Prince Ronald. But what does Prince Not-So-Charming say when he sees her? "You smell like ashes, your hair is all tangled and you are wearing a dirty old paper bag. Come back when you are dressed like a real princess." (At least he has the courtesy not to mention that the princess's crown resembles a dying sea anemone.) In any case, let's just say that Princess Elizabeth and Prince Ronald do not, under any circumstances, live happily ever after. Canadian author Robert Munsch celebrates feisty females everywhere with this popular favorite, and Michael Martchenko's scratchy, comical, pen-and-ink drawings capture the tongue-in-cheek quality of this read-aloud crowd pleaser. (Ages 4 to 8) --Karin Snelson
