Do you think that legends are all about princes and princesses, knights and heroes, giants and monsters? Well, they aren't always.
The stories in this book are about girls like you and girls you might know: clever, strong, brave and resourceful.
Here you can read the story 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; Seren, who used her love of singing to help others; and many more fearless characters.
Storyteller Fiona Collins has chosen the best of the old tales from all around the world and reworked them into new and exciting versions to be enjoyed by everyone, accompanied by magical illustrations by talented artist Ed Fisher.
