Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The third book in the Paper Princess series by Elisa Kleven finds the heroine and her pooch in search of a gift for their owner in The Paper Princess Flies Again (With Her Dog). In their travels, they adapt a paper flag as a magic carpet, hitch a ride on a kite, and undergo more adventures against the fiesta-bright Mexico backdrop. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
This joyous book, with its exquisitely detailed illustrations, is crammed full of delights, just like the pinata that serves as the key to the climax of this wonderful sequel to The Paper Princess Finds Her Way. This title is just as appealing and satisfying as Kleven's previous books, as she tells the story of the Paper Princess' quest for a special gift for her human friend, Lucy. The Paper Princess and her dog greatly appreciate the company of Lucy and all of the things she does in playing with them, such as creating colorful costumes and "toys" to entertain them. Their search for a present leads them on several adventures. They must use their wits and courage to support each other and prevail over such perils as a greedy boy, a hungry coyote (who mistakes them for "rabbits"), the sea, a rainstorm, and becoming totally lost. Ultimately they take refuge in a basket of "brightly wrapped sweets." While they are sleeping they are scooped up with the candies to be used to fill the pinata for the evening's fiesta at—Lucy's house! Reunited with their beloved friend, the story ends with great celebration. The Paper Princess and her dog had set out to find a gift for Lucy and returned with a paper flag that did not seem adequate to serve as a present; but, the story of their adventures is the very sort of present that Lucy loves best of all. Children will love pouring over the illustrations and in doing so will learn a good deal about Mexican culture in the process. 2005, Tricycle Press/Ten Speed Press, Ages 3 up.

K-Gr 2-In this third book about the Paper Princess, Lucy prepares for a fiesta and decides to give presents to her friends, Paper Princess and her dog. Wanting to give the girl something in return, the Princess and her pet go off on an adventure to locate that one special gift for her. They find themselves sailing on the wind, getting tangled in a kite, and even catching a ride on a tumbleweed. They arrive home just in time for the party and a happy ending. The layout of the text and pictures does not flow naturally, making it uneasy on the eyes. Although the illustrations are detailed, they are too busy, blending together too many details and making some of them unclear. Children unfamiliar with the first two tales might be confused about the characters and their abilities. Purchase only if you have a real following for the series.-Lisa S. Schindler, Bethpage Public Library, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
In previous installments in this series, Lucy found a torn and tattered paper princess, made her beautiful new clothes and created a paper dog to keep her company. Now it's Lucy's birthday and her paper friends want to give her a gift. So they embark on a search that proves to be a journey filled with adventures. They fly on a red paper flag, catch on to a kite's tail, are almost eaten by a coyote and sail out to sea in a tangle of tumbleweed. When they hit land, they wind up in a basket of goodies that are placed in a pi-ata for Lucy's birthday party. The paper friends now have a wonderful gift for Lucy, the story of their adventures. Colorful, detailed illustrations enhance the action and maintain the integrity of the Mexican setting. Kleven's tale is a slight bit of whimsy that will appeal to imaginative young readers. (Picture book. 4-7)
