From the long-haired Petrosinella who escaped the tower and broke the spell that the ogress had cast over her and Nana Miriam who beat a hippo using politeness and magic, to Kate Crackernuts who tried to save her stepsister from her mother’s curse, these are stories of girls doing it for
themselves! With stories drawn from all over the world, including China, Scotland, Armenia,Italy and Nigeria, Lari Don presents heroine stories that don’t leave girls sitting around waiting to be saved by the handsome prince.
When I was emailed about this book, I thought it sounded ideal for Smallest, who is a voracious reader these days. I wasn’t wrong either, she loved it, and for the first time ever, sent me the review in her own words.
Fierce Fearless And Free is a beautiful Book with a wonderful array of stories, This Book is sure to Inspire And Delight Readers.
I think that’s a pretty good recommendation, and while I will be having a chat about where capital letters go in sentences 😉 I’m happy that she’s joining in with reviewing.
