Feminist Folktales from Around the World: Volume I
Foreword by Gayle Forman
Illustrated by Suki Boynton
With tales from Japan, Norway, Scotland, and Sudan, Tatterhood brings readers twelve folk tales—and twelve women whose cunning, hard work, and physical strength are at the center of the story. Three women teach a strong man how to wrestle, a girl battles a bear, and a young woman rescues a village from an elephant’s stomach.
