World Folktales for Strong Girls
Told By Jane Yolen
Illustrated by Susan Guevara

You keep telling us you want more stories about strong women. This book should please you. Thirteen folk tales from around the world—Argentina to Niger, Greece to the Ozark Mountains—have been compiled here by a master (not mistress!) of storytelling, Jane Yolen. Now, we're really picky about the wording of folk and fairy tales. They really do need to be told just right in order to speak to that deep part of us that identifies with archetypes and is hungry for the rich tapestry of their meaning to cloak the soul. Jane Yolen knows how to do this and spins her magic here.

Each story has one black and white illustration—not too detailed—but just right in order to leave most up to the imagination. Inspiring as well as spell-binding, these stories, mostly ones you've likely not heard of, are just what the doctor ordered for a culture pining away for stories about something real, something that's withstood the test of time, something that shows us people who can rise above. And in this case, they happen to be women.
