Twenty-five great stories about twenty-five clever and courageous girls!
In most fairy tales, the helpless girl waits around for a prince to rescue her. But the girls featured in the Girls to the Rescue series' seven books are not only smart, they're also spunky enough to save the day when the going gets tough. And the response to the series from girls, parents, teachers, booksellers, and reviewers has been overwhelmingly positive. For The Best of Grils to the Rescue, Bruce Lansky selected twenty-five stories that rise above the rest.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I purchased this book for my six year old daughter and she loves it. She has a few favorite stories in the book that she reads over and over again. The book is filled with characters that break the traditional mold of what good girls are supposed to be like and emulate. The stories promote personal strength and reinforce that all girls must have the ability to believe in themselves. This compilation of stories is such a refreshing alternative to the old-fashioned stories centered around the damsel in distress. Overall, the book is fantastic and I recommend it highly to everyone . . . boys and girls!
