Hey, when my son was born and I had to get other grad students to substitute for me for a while, I scheduled Nausicaa (the first book or the series, I think) for my students to read, since it was the request of my friend Enrique who was substituting - I didn't get to teach it, but I read it and graded the papers my students wrote about it. He also showed Princess Mononoke to the class! (I haven't seen all of it, though - you're right, these movies are kind of scary, even for me!).


I've been trying to reclaim the Princess stereotype a bit for myself lately. It's something that gets very ingrained but you can either choose to let it make you powerful or powerless. Needless to say, I'm more interested in exploring the former.


Have you seen the picture book called The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch? My 2 year old boy loves it. It's a gently feminist twist on the classic princess/prince/dragon tale. Actually, my little guy just likes the dragon, but I'm sure he's internalizeing the idea that princesses can be tough and will tell off the royal bum of a prince if he's not nice in the end.
