The Paper Princess by Elisa Kleven

A gust of wind sends a paper princess flying. 'Wait! I didn't finish you,' cries the little girl who made her. 'I'll finish myself,' calls the princess, and the wind carries her away, over a meadow and a river, to a carnival and a town, until finally she finds her way home. Elisa Kleven's 'mixed-media collages are a kaleidoscope of color and activity, encompassing a vast, multiracial cast of happy people' (Publishers Weekly). 'The best book yet from this talented author/illustrator, and one that children will love.' — School Library Journal, starred reviewElisa Kleven's award-winning picture books include her own Ernst and The Lion and the Little Red Bird, the illustrations for Abuela, by Arthur Dorros, and her most recent book for Dutton, The Puddle Pail. She lives near San Francisco, California.
