I love this book a lot. This book reminds women to rely on themselves to solve their problems, not anyone else. I wish Barbara Walker would write more stories like this, and write fairy tales for little girls to read alongside the traditional fairy tales so they will learn that they don't need a "knight in shining armor" to rescue them.
Great Stories about great mythical heroes. Thoughtfully re-written and beautifully illistrated. An excellent read for anyone. Especially women. Pick it up I promice you will enjoy it.
