Robert Munsch at his best. This rescue tale with its twist ending is a classic, and the illustrations are a perfect complement to the action. A delightful read.

Princess and Prince attacked by dragon, Prince kidnapped, Princess saves Prince, Prince criticizes her outfit… and she makes the only sensible decision! Love this book.

This story is unique to most of Mr Munsch's writing in that it departs from the predictable pattern that he usually uses. LOVE the strong and relentless female character. Not all princesses need crowns and beautiful crowns! A must for all Canadian Kids bookshelves.

This was my favourite Munsch book when I was little and now, it seems to be, my 2yr old son's as well.
He loves the Dragon (of course) and it has not only proven to be a great read for us to share, but it has proven to be entertaining in other ways.
He loves to recite the book word-for-word and reenact it. Only, when he plays the Dragon, he likes to wake up when he is supposed to stay asleep and eat Prince Ronald. Ha ha.
Great Book! It is read nightly and sometimes multiple times during the day.

It just doesn't get any better than this! When a dragon burns down her castle and clothes and takes her fiance, Prince Ronald, captive, Princess Elizabeth sets out to save her fiance in a paper-bag dress. The surprise at the ending is priceless. (Must admit I skip the pages in which Elizabeth, in order to tire out the dragon, challenges him to burn down 50 forests, then 100 forests. The book was written in a less eco-aware time [not that that's a good excuse]).
