Year 4 Literacy Class Review: The Paper Bag Prince

The Paper Bag Prince by Colin Thompson

Published by Random House Children’s Books

This book made me roll on the floor laughing; it has funny and sad parts. It is about a man whose house burned down and the council wouldn’t let him rebuild his house so he has to live on the dump, in a train carriage.

My favorite part of the book is when the Paper Bag Prince gets his farm back from the council after so many years.

The main characters in this book are Princess the dog, the lorry and crane driver and the Paper Bag Prince. The illustrations have hidden pictures and a message in them.

I liked this book because it has a happy ending and it explains why he is living on a dump. I think that this book is appropriate for children from 8 and up!!!
