Inspiring the best-selling picture book in the world: Paper Bag Princess is an excellent textbook specifically aimed at gender equality education between children. As far as the scope of my vision is concerned, this should be a children's book published in the mainland that directly reflects such concepts. In the story, the princess and the prince are about to "live happily together" from the beginning, but the fire dragon snatches the prince away and burns the castle to the ground. The princess had to put on a paper bag, and then bravely chased the fire dragon to rescue the prince. The princess defeated the fire dragon with her wit. Unexpectedly, the prince felt that the princess was ragged. The princess was so angry that she scolded the prince as a useless fellow, and then drove away. This story subverts the image of the prince and princess in previous fairy tales. First of all, the princess is more wise and powerful. In traditional fairy tales, the princess is waiting for the prince's rescue, but this fairy tale completely swaps the two roles. Secondly, the princess behaved more assertively. When the prince blamed the princess, the princess immediately returned the color and abandoned him without hesitation.
