This book is suitable for ages 6 years & over. It features 25 traditional tales that come from Asia, Europe, Africa, and the Americas. All the central characters are spirited females - decisive heroes of extraordinary courage, wit, and achievement who set out to determine their own fate. Some of their stories are comic, some adventurous, some eerie, and some magical. "The Chicago Sun-Times" writes: 'A sparkling gathering of traditional, yet little-known, tales from all parts of the globe. The female characters ...manage to outsmart, outdo, and over-power the villains with nerves of steel, cunning minds, and disarming senses of humor'.
