Girl Power!

This is a great book for girls! Finally a fairytale where the girl is the hero!

Great lessons for girls

This book is great for teaching young girls that they don't need boys to save them.

great book!

Great message!


This is no stereotypical damsel in distress story. The princess can take of herself and knows what really maters. The illustrations are wonderful too.

Amazing twist

A must read for all little girls - and boys! In a twist on the usual tale, the princess tries to rescue her prince from an evil dragon after the dragon burns down her castle and all her clothes - leaving her to wear a paper bag. She is brave and clever enough to save her prince - only to find out the prince isn't grateful for her effort - he's upset because she's dirty. A true classic and a lesson for all about what really matters.
