MEDIA REVIEWS
A feminist manifesto in children's book form, and even at six, I was enchanted... kick-ass story.
This special 25th anniversary edition includes the original illustrated version of the story plus much, much more.... Highly Recommended.--Valerie Nielsen"Canadian Materials" (09/16/2005)
Starred Selection 2006 Starred Selection 2006
One of the best princess stories ever told, Elizabeth turns the princess stereotype on its head, empowering young girls to be true to themselves.--Elizabeth Shaffer"BC Parent" (10/01/2005)
Since its publication in 1980, the book has been reprinted 52 times, sold over three million copies and been translated into dozens of languages. This special 25th anniversary edition includes the original illustrated version of the story plus much, much more.... In both style and content, the text of the "story behind the story" part of this special anniversary edition is perfectly suited to early elementary readers. Fans of the artist will undoubtedly enjoy Martchenko's bright and cheeky drawings which enliven every page.... Educators should note that, as well as providing teachers, librarians and parents with a perfect opportunity to re-visit the well-loved story, The Paper Bag Princess: The Story Behind the Story is a wonderful enrichment resource for older students involved in book-making projects. Highly Recommended.--Valerie Nielsen"Canadian Materials" (09/16/2005)
