Elizabeth was a beautiful princess. She lived in a castle and had expensive princess clothes. She was going to marry a prince named Ronald.
Unfortunately, a dragon smashed her castle, burnt all her clothes with his fiery breath, and carried off Prince Ronald.
Elizabeth decides she will chase the dragon and rescue Ronald. The only thing she can find to wear, is a paper bag, so she dons her new outfit and sets off to find Ronald.
It doesn’t take Elizabeth long to find the dragon. Instead of trying to overcome the beast with brute strength, she uses her intelligence and outsmarts him instead.

- the colours in the book
- the character, Princess Elizabeth
- the underlying theme of the book
‘Elizabeth, you are a mess! You smell like ashes, your hair is tangled and you are wearing a dirty old paper bag. Come bag when you are dressed like a real princess.
‘Your clothes are really pretty and your hair is very neat. You look like a real prince, but you are a toad.’
Needless to say, they didn’t get married.

This is one of my FAVORITE books! We did the “play” in elementary school using this book and I have loved it ever since. I love this outfit. So adorable and perfect for the book.
That is a pretty dress, and very fit for an active little princess! I love the color and fabric, you have done a beautiful job as always!
I did not know about this book, but definitely it is a book I will read to my daughter. I love brave princesses!

I LOVE it! What a great ending too lol. I’m also a big Paul Jennings and Mem Fox fan we have loads of their books. However I haven’t heard of Robert Munsch going to look for this book. Great outfit and it sounds like an awesome book for little girls. Emily again this series is fantastic, Pam did a great job.
