Goddesses & Heroines

$ 19.95

"Since ancient times, goddesses and heroines have given shape to the wonders of our world. And yet all too often, the storybooks tell us only of the deeds of gods and heroes. Within these pages you'll find 13 empowering tales of women—from Hecate, the math whiz who refused to bow to power, to Mulan, who fought as a man to save China—whose bravery, wit and strength still inspire us.

"Performance storyteller Xanthe Gresham-Knight and illustrator Alice Pattullo have drawn from original texts and sources to bring these tales to life."
