New York, NY (PRWEB) July 01, 2012
Open Road Media and Annick Press announce the release of notable picture books from four award-winning authors: Robert Munsch’s The Paper Bag Princess, an international bestselling modern classic about a princess who rescues a very snooty and ungrateful prince; Roslyn Schwartz’s The Mole Sisters series, picture books about two unfailingly optimistic, resourceful, and confident sisters; Kathy Stinson’s preschooler classics Red is Best and A Pocket Can Have a Treasure in It; and Hazel Hutchins’ simple, lyrical stories, Mattland and Together.
The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch
In this classic feminist picture book, which has over twelve million copies in print, Princess Elizabeth plans on marrying Prince Ronald, until a dragon arrives and destroys her kingdom, kidnaps Ronald, and burns all her clothes so that she has no choice but to wear a paper bag. Elizabeth outsmarts the dragon and rescues Ronald, who is ungrateful and tells her to return when she looks more like a princess. Elizabeth realizes that she is better off without Ronald and sets off into the sunset to live her own life.
“Some of the best children’s books ever written have been about girls—like The Paper Bag Princess.”
—The New York Times
“The story of the princess Elizabeth who outsmarts a dragon and puts down a prince has stolen the hearst of many.” —Kirkus
“In terms of sheer love…sheer devotion of the readership…I don’t think anyone holds a candle to this tale.”
—School Library Journal
