Thank you so much to Arcturus and NetGalley for the earc to read and review.
Review: I really enjoyed reading this, it’s filled with stories of great heroines from all over the world, of girls that have had to be brave and overcome obstacles in their lives and set out on an adventure.
From Fa Mulan to Hinemoa to Lykke to Heidi and so many more incredible stories this book is such a great read and I recommend it. You’ll have fun reading about each different short story, it would make a great book to read with a child. The stories are all so different and so exciting, and who doesn’t enjoy a fun adventure?
The book also comes with some incredible illustrations to show you who these great women are and enhance your vision as you read their stories. It’s such an enjoyable and fun book.
