There are only three characters in this story, it follows a conventional sequence, and the conflict and resolution are clear to new readers. But a dragon destroys everything in the castle and takes Ronald away. Elizabeth only has a paper bag to cover herself. Needless to say, Elizabeth, now the Paper Bag Princess, goes after the dragon.

She is able to trick the dragon and rescue Ronald. Here she is about to rescue Ronald once the dragon has fallen asleep. Ronald is not very grateful, in fact he is down right upset with her appearance!!

Thankfully, Elizabeth knows the importance of character, and judges Ronald on his character rather than his looks. She discards Ronald and goes on her happy way! Of course this book deserves writing prompts, story maps, and even more! There are character poems in the unit, story maps that you can glue to a paper bag, create a story map on a paper bag, and so much more! You can find the unit at my TPT store. Your students will love this book and the activities too!
