Great Book!!!

My child and I loved this book, It inspired her so much she wanted to make her own paper doll just like the paper princess! we did. Highly recommended!!!!

Wonderful interweaving of nature and fantasy

My children and I were enchanted by this book. We love the author's ability to blend imaginary elements -- talking paper dolls, toys and animals -- with real and inspiring facts from nature, namely the migration of Monarch butterflies. The passages which show the paper princess abandoned in the discarded Christmas tree, enduring the harsh winter, awakening in spring, and finally being rescued by the Monarchs "one late summer day...when the leaves are flying like tiny kites" are especially moving. This tale both feeds our imaginations and stimulates our awe for the animal kingdom. Sharing this beautiful and unique book would be a great way to introduce Monarchs in the classroom.

Wonderful and Inspiring!!

The Paper Princess Finds Her Way is an absolutely wonderful and inspiring book. Even though "It can be a hard world for small fragile things," the paper princess knows she must change because the world around her has changed. She boldly takes on the challenges of the hard world and finds adventure, beauty and newness. Elisa's writing is wonderfully illustrative; I could clearly imagine the cat who "smiled a sharp cat smile" or the butterflies that "travelled, a magic carpet of sunlit wings." The story made me laugh, smile and think about the beauty in life and the beauty of change. This book is not just for children. However, my eight year old was just as enthralled as I. "Wait! I want to look at the picture," he urged, not wanting to be rushed before he read the page. The illustrations in The Paper Princess Finds Her Way are intimate and full of details that tell their own stories such as birthday parties or a childcooking with her grandma. As with Elisa's other books, studying the pictures is much of the fun and I'd become absorbed in the small village or living room on the page. I highly recommend this book for children's libraries, home libraries and all elementary school classrooms.

Another Magical Kleven Tale

AT LAST! More adventures about the brave and friendly, soulful paper princess making her way from her (now grown up) creator to the hand of another artistic child in Mexico. What a wonderful antidote to the mass consumer society we live in today. It is definitely a story to cherish and the illustrations are beyond this world! Kleven's illustrations of the Monarch butterflies in flight are mystical and left me hoping for more. Hooray for our brave princess and may her own creator, Elisa Kleven, bless us with more delightful and heartfelt stories!!
