A Royal Picture Book!

We have Google alerts set up for our book titles, authors, and illustrators, to keep an eye out for reviews and online mentions. Our most famous book, Robert Munsch's The Paper Bag Princess, pops up at least a few times a week. But last week, I was amused to see a few mentions of The Paper Bag Princess turn up in connection with the royal wedding!

On the parenting blog Upbeats and Downbeat, Gail Underwood Parker writes about how The Paper Bag Princess teaches that "it is up to each of us to discover what OUR 'happily ever after' looks like." And on the Kabongo blog, Margaret gives the book a review "in honor of the new Princess Kate."

If you haven't checked out this classic strong-princess tale yet, you're in luck: you can choose from the original edition (paperback or hardcover), the 25th anniversary edition, the Annikin edition (for tiny hands), or the board book version!
