Summary

A brilliant, inclusive collection of traditional tales from around the world featuring amazing women and girls. 
 
Once upon a time, there was a handsome prince who – no, that's not right! Once upon a time, there were strong, fierce women who plotted, schemed, took action, showed kindness, used magic and trickery, and made their own destiny. From the long-haired Petrosinella who escaped the tower and broke the spell that the ogress had cast over her and Nana Miriam who beat a hippo using politeness and magic, to Kate Crackernuts who tried to save her stepsister from her mother's curse, these are stories of girls doing it for themselves! 
 
With stories drawn from all over the world, including China, Scotland, Armenia, Italy and Nigeria, Lari Don presents heroine stories that don't leave girls sitting around waiting to be saved by the handsome prince.

    Children aren’t immune to stress. Kids are especially prone to feel fear before stressful events in their lives. Family, school, and team sports’ schedules have been crammed into their daily activities so extensively that many children are robbed of their free recreational “growth” time, and an alarming number of kids are experiencing high levels of stress because of this. All of these realities can lead to our children having the same kinds of fears and concerns we adults have, especially about things they often have no control over. In this invaluable book, author J. S. Jackson helps children explore attitudes and ideas to try and diminish some of the stress they feel in their lives.

    Thatcher Hill is bored stiff of his summer job dusting the fake mermaids and shrunken heads at his uncle's seaside Museum of Curiosities. But when a mysterious girl steals an artifact from the museum, Thatcher's summer becomes an adventure that takes him from the top of the ferris wheel to the depths of the sea. Following the thief, he learns that she is a princess of the lost Atlantis. Her people have been cursed by an evil witch to drift at sea all winter and wash up on shore each summer to an even more terrible fate-working the midway games and food stands on the boardwalk. Can Thatcher help save them before he, too, succumbs to the witch's curse? 
     
    With sharp, witty writing that reads like a middle-grade Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Greg van Eekhout's first book for young readers is a wild ride packed with as many laughs as it has thrills.
