The idea here is wonderful-gather up stories from around the world with strong women and girls together in one book. And some of the stories are fantastic! But why change Atalanta's ending? And why are so many of these stories centered around the prize of marrying a man? This feel like an early 2000s attempt to give girls space in a place where they have traditionally been rescued damsels. But we are further than that, and I wanted more from this.
