Do you think that old stories are all about princes and princesses, knights and heroes, giants and monsters? Not always ... these are stories from around the world about girls like you and girls you might know: clever, strong, brave and resourceful. If you are aged between 7 and 12 years old you will enjoy reading the stories of Vasilisa, who wasn't afraid of the deep dark forest; Mollie Whuppie, who knew how to trick a giant; Tipingi, who was able to call on her friends to help her get out of trouble; Tegwedd, who used her magic powers to help others; and many more fearless girls.Fiona Collins has been a storyteller for a long time. She knows the old tales, and how to make them fresh and new. With magical illustrations of these young heroines by talented artist Ed Fisher, this is a book to treasure.
