A clever compilation of fairy tales with strong heroines, this is an excellent book to read to young girls. I enjoyed the non-traditional, non-classic tales and the incorporation of stories from other cultures. ( )

Book 1 in a series that is up to 7. Bruce Lansky writes stories and funny poems for children. He performs in school assemblies and workshops. Lansky compiled some stories and edited other traditional fairy tales for his daughter, Dana. He wanted to feature strong female protagonists who instead of waiting for their Prince Charmings to save the day, solve their own problems. ( )
