The Serpent Slayer: and other stories of strong women

by: Katrin Tchana
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars

Category: Folk Tale

Personal Evaluation: I came across this as I was considering books to get for my 7-year-old cousin, whose mother is a feminist. She is very into dragons and fairies and things and even though she is not allowed to have Barbies, she could still use a few more strong female role models!

What might interest children: The stories in this collection are great stories in general, and even more so for girls because of all the commanding women. They are also from different cultures, which is cool for comparison.
