Product description

The girls in these five stories come from different places, but they have one thing in common: they’re really smart! When they gear up their brains they can outwit anyone – a crafty king, a mean old farmer, an angry squire and even a terrifying ghost! Much-loved folk tales retold by Robert Leeson, with fresh new artwork by Axel Scheffler, who did the pictures for Gruffalo. Inspiring stuff to get you turning those (brilliantly illustrated) pages – a must if you’re powering up to read longer books on your own.

  • Shortlisted for the Guardian Children’s Book Prize
  • Witty folk tales with charming pictures by Axel Scheffler
  • By top author Robert Leeson, who wrote over 70 books
  • A great way for readers to gain stamina and confidence

“I loved this inspiring book. It gives out encouraging and positive messages to young girls of all ages about their abilities, regardless of their origins, and acknowledges their capacity to adapt to any role or position as problem solvers and leaders.” Kids’ Book Review
