Reviews for The Paper Bag Princess
Annikin Edition Mini Book
This is a miniature edition of Robert Munsch's The Paper Bag Princess and is part of the Annikin editions. It measures just 8.5 cm by 8.5 cm in size. My children LOVE these tiny books! They work well for their little hands. They are great for taking along on a trip in the car as they easily fit in a small purse or bag and weigh next to nothing.
If you are looking for other Annikin edition books, they generally cost around $2. Check the bibliographic data and check the dimensions listed for the book to be certain. by Kathryn Schultz

Yea, I learned that you get what you pay for sometime
I find it funny, its cute and small, and indeed for children. I would have liked the full blown size, but it will do. Please indicate the dimensions for the buyer next time. by Jamee Naylor
Note: This edition is tiny!
This is a lovely story, and one that I remember fondly from my childhood. It subverts the normal archetypes, telling the tale of a princess whose castle is destroyed by a dragon that flies away with her prince. All her clothes having been burnt, she puts on a paper bag and follows the trail to the dragon's lair, where she outsmarts the dragon and rescues the prince. However, the snooty prince turns up his nose at her dirty appearance, leading to the princess to reply: "Ronald, your clothes are really pretty and your hair is all neat. You look like a real prince, but you are a bum." It still makes me laugh now.
It is quite a short and simple story but nicely written and with a full illustration alongside each page. The copy I am buying now is for my 4-year old cousin.
However, I didn't look at the details when I was buying, and was rather disappointed to find that this edition is TINY!! It measures 8.5 cm square, and cute as it is, does not feel like a 'real' book. So the price may be cheap, but be aware that this is the reason why - check the full product information. by Cerys
