Are you tired of the traditional passive (or evil) female folktale characters? Doug Lipman has unearthed and reassembled 5 tales of women - but none of them are the hand-wringing variety. The heroines take command of their lives in entertaining and engaging ways. These tales come from all over the world, including Iraq, Poland, Vietnam, South Africa, and Spain. The collection includes "The Chicken Woman," "The Woman Who Saved the City," "The Clever Wife of Vietnam," "The One with the Star on Her Forehead" (more commonly known to Westerners as "Snow White" but with an unexpected twist), and "La Muerta: Godmother Death."More
"Each story entertainingly demonstrates how a woman relying on her own resourcefulness takes control of her life. On cold winter nights, little girls nowadays will have a lot more to choose from." (The Boston Phoenix)
