    Must read fairy tale book for young girls!

    In my humble opinion, this is a must read book for moms of girls. It is a fairy/folk tale book, so there will be magic, just like Grimm's or Lang's; however, this book is a collection of stories where the protagonist is a female. A very different perspective from your standard damsel-in-distress type fairy tales usually told at this age.

    Fun for boys and girls

    Stories from around the world where girls are the protagonists and win the day with cleverness more than violence. The stories are very entertaining.
