Someone in my office gave me info about the book I've been waiting for
since age 3. Maybe you have all heard of it, but in case there are a few
others who haven't, enjoy the summary below.

Barbara, Barbara, and Dorothy--
learned about a wonderful children's book (a MUST for little
girls) called the "Paper Bag Princess"

In a nutshell, the story is - dragon destroys castle and carries off the
soon to be married Prince Rupert. Princess has nothing, dresses in paper
bag, tricks dragon, rescues Prince. Prince (who had sat on his butt
waiting to be rescued) replies - "your hair is messy, you're wearing a
dirty paper bag, and you don't smell so good". Princess replies "well
Rupert, you look and smell good, but you're no prince", and she dances
herself off into the sunset.

Sounds like something I would like to read and give to my granddaughter
(if I had one).
