Short and sweet, October 19, 2013
A really short game, based on a sweet children book. Implementation is good, and the writing is neat (I guess it's made to sound like the book). However it is very short and seem to follow very closely the book - if like me you don't know the book, you have no chance of figuring out how to pass some obstacles. I guess that game might be liked by kids who know or don't know the book.

A short, smooth parser game based on the book by the same name, May 6, 2016
This game is more or less a faithful adaptation of the Paper Bag Princess with some classic puzzles thrown in.

The game is well-polished. Events occur on timers in a smooth way, the plot progresses at a good speed, most appropriate commands are recognized.

The story, taken from the book with permission, is cute. Overall though, the game felt slight and not as involving as it could have.
