Tales of Brave and Brilliant Girls from Around the World
Meet a girl who fights dragons, a brave warrior queen, and a daughter in search of her Samurai father...
This beautifully illustrated collection brings you eight fantastic fairy tales from around the world. Full of wit, charm, compassion and courage, these heroes will inspire and empower a new generation of readers.
