    Enchanting and wonderful!

    What an awesome little book! Perfect for any little girl or the little girl inside us all. Ten bedtime fables about girls (or re-told with a female heroine) without anything violent, objectionable, or even a trace of boy-bashing. I will look for more of these exciting and sweet stories. Highly recommended!

    A Special Bit Of Courage

    Exellent book.... easy storyline to follow, one of the magical books in the series. Some tales are royalty, some pheasants. Every time you turn the page you find yourself thinking, when will she strike? In most stories a pretty, dainty lady waits around for a prince to save her.... these girls don't have the patince! You can know that these stories won't end with, happlily ever after! This book makes pages of exitment open to joy! Girls To The Rescue shows that, with a special kind of courage, girls CAN do it!
