The Paper Bag Princess

Just like Anja before her, Isabel really likes the story of “The Paper Bag Princess". It’s a moderately old book (1980) but has gained popularity over the years having sold more than 3 million copies.

It turns the stereotypical prince saves the princess story on its head with an added twist at the end. In this story, Princess Elizabeth saves Prince Ronald but since he was not very gracious and respectful of how she looked after having saved him from a dragon (she’s only wearing a paper bag) she lets him know that he is a “bum” and goes her separate way to live happily ever after…without her prince!

Ruby's middle name is Elizabeth, named after The Paper Bag Princess! :) It's a piece of my time with Anja that will be with me forever and ever. :)
