Opinion

From Library Staff

These thirteen folktales have one thing in common: brainy, brawny, brave heroines who use their cunning, wisdom, and strength to succeed. I found this an especially well-written collection of stories.

Definitely a little advanced for my three-year-old. There were several tales with smiting, not graphic or anything, but they did turn her off to the book. I think it will be something more enjoyable in the 8-10 year old range.
