I don’t know how it is that I never read this book. It feels like a classic. This edition is the 40th anniversary one of The Paper Bag Princess. This is a modern fairy tale for both our daughters and sons. Elizabeth, the princess of the title, is plucky, brave and clever. Her prince, Robert, does not appreciate her talents, even though the untidy Elizabeth rescues him from a dragon. What happens at the end? Read the book to find out.
This edition has an introduction by Chelsea Clinton and a short piece by Francesca Segal.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review. I give the book five stars.
