Blog Tour: ‘Fierce , Fearless and Free,’ by Lari Don, illustrated by Eilidh Muldoon.

This book is about the fearless girls who feature in myths and legends from around the world who don’t need anyone to save them! They make their own decisions and shape their own destinies.

It contains such a wonderfully diverse selection of tales from around the world, most of which I had never read before. It was fascinating to be able to read about some of the amazing but lesser-known females who’d been busily defeating mountains, breaking spells and outwitting werewolves through the pages of time.

There were so many brilliant stories to pick from that it’s impossible for me to choose a favourite. Each of them contained a heroine who used her wits to triumph over whatever was thrown in their path. I also loved that each tale had a little pinch of humour and a touch of magic.

Each myth can be read in about five minutes which makes this title a great addition to any teacher’s arsenal – it could easily be picked up and read during a break in the day or an assembly. Every carefully chosen entry is sure to promote discussion and wonder!
