Tales of Brave and Brilliant Girls from Around the World

Regular price £12.99 Sale

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.

This book is a celebration of stories from around the world. The heroes of the tales are all girls and young women. They can slay dragons, save kingdoms and outwit their foes, but they also show kindness and compassion, wisdom and selflessness. They are heroes in every sense of the world. And they are, of course, brave and brilliant, each and every one.

The stories are:

  • Mulan (China)
  • Nanabolele (Lesotho, Southern Africa)
  • Vasilisa and Prince Vladimir (Russia)
  • Moremi and the Egunguns (Nigeria)
  • The Legend of Tokoyo (Japan)
  • The Dragon Slayer (Mexico)
  • The Sleep Watchers (Ireland)
  • The Warrior Queen (India)

Our Epic Explorers collection focuses on middle-grade readers aged 7-12 years, and offers books full of inspiring stories of wide-ranging explorers who've shaped how we see the world through their daring adventurers, and STEM learning kits and games to inspire children to get outdoors and explore themselves.
