Tatterhood: Feminist Folktales from Around the World Cover Image
By Ethel Johnston Phelps (Editor), Suki Boynton (Illustrator), Gayle Forman (Introduction by)
Special Order


From Japan to Norway, Scotland to Sudan, Tatterhood brings readers twelve folk tales--and twelve women whose cunning, hard work, and physical strength are celebrated in each story. A family of three women teaches a burly man how to wrestle, a girl battles a fearsome bear, and a young mother rescues her village from an elephant's stomach.
