Readers the world-over have fallen in love with this classic story of girl power. 

When the fiercest dragon in the whole world smashes Princess Elizabeth’s castle, burns all her clothes, and captures her fiancé, Prince Ronald, Elizabeth takes matters into her own hands. With her wits alone and nothing but a paper bag to wear, the princess challenges the dragon to show his strength in the hopes of saving the prince. But is it worth all that trouble?


“This humorous story sends an assuring message to readers about women’s (and girls) potential to break through sex-role stereotyping. This book, a pioneer of a slowly growing genre of non-traditional prince and princess stories, introduces a positive image of an empowered woman for children and adults alike.”
