it was amazing

Read in January, 1990

Got this book from an aunt and uncle who no doubt were trying to expose me to some tales with strong women characters. Whatever the intentions behind the gift, I find that a lot of these tales have stuck with me over the years, if only in fragments. And they're not your typical "oh, let's retell this story and insert a kick-ass heroine." The main characters are clever, brave, sometimes physically strong, and often have goals that don't include securing a husband. And some of them are pretty funny, to boot!
