Publisher's Summary

Long before Suzanne Collins created Katniss Everdeen and Octavia Butler wrote Parable of the Sower, there were many traditional folktales full of adventure, intrigue, and intrepid female characters. Feminist Folktales from Around the World collects these forgotten classics. Enjoy this collection of all four volumes - Tatterhood, Kamala, Sea Girl, and The Hunter Maiden.

Volume one in the series, Tatterhood, features an introduction by Gayle Forman, The New York Times best-selling author of If I Stay. These 12 tales from Japan, Norway, Scotland, Sudan, and more celebrate the cunning, hard work, and physical strength of their heroines. Here, a family of three women teaches a burly man how to wrestle, a girl battles a fearsome bear, and a young mother rescues her village from an elephant's stomach.
