Just because I took some time to get this one does not in any way indicate a less than worthy addition to your shelves. As readers of this blog would be aware I’m a huge supporter of ‘Mighty Girl’ books and this is certainly one of those.
With a foreword from Kate Pankhurst (descendant of Emmeline Pankhurst) one would expect nothing less than a collection of stories which celebrate “adventurous, intelligent and daring” girls.
Eight stories which are neglected traditional fairy tales which all put girls squarely into the hero’s role including: Snow White and Rose Red, The Wise Princess, The Sleeping Prince and Fearless Fiona and the Spellbound Knight.
It is of course as an Usborne book beautifully presented with striking illustrations and embellishments throughout and would make a delicious gift for a young girl of your acquaintance.
If you are building up your collection of inspiring books for girls – or perhaps books to share with both genders to illustrate that heroes come in all variations – this is a wonderful addition to your shelves.
Highly recommended for readers from around 7 years upwards.
