This excerpt from The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch, one of 7 Year-Old Me’s favourite books:
Prince Ronald said, “Elizabeth, your hair is all dirty. You are wearing an ugly paper bag. You don’t have any shoes on and you smell like a dragon’s ear. Come back and rescue me when you’re dressed like a real princess.”
Elizabeth said, “Ronald, your hair is all nice. Your clothes are all pretty. You look like a nice guy, but guess what? You are a bum.”
They didn’t get married after all.
This book should be read to every little girl on Earth. As much as I love Belle and Esmeralda, FUCK Disney!
I like my princesses in paper bags.
