Publisher Description

The first volume in this beautifully illustrated anthology features traditional tales of heroic women from Japan to Scotland and beyond.

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 and presents them with original artwork by designer and illustrator Suki Boynton.

Volume one in the series, Tatterhood features an introduction by Gayle Forman, the New York Times bestselling author of If I Stay. These twelves tales from Japan, Norway, Scotland, Sudan, and more, celebrate the cunning, hard work, and physical strength of their heroines. In these pages, 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.
