Tatterhood is born riding a goat and waving a wooden spoon because her mother the queen disobeyed the witch who allowed her to conceive, but her twin sister is sweet and fair. Tatterhood, who always looks tattered, goes on a journey to find the troll who traded her sister’s head for a cow’s and defeats him. She meets a prince who asks why she dresses as she does and rides a goat. She immediately turns the goat to a horse, her tatters to finery, and her spoon into a wand. She and the prince live happily ever after.

Since I got this book from the library, it's all she's wanted to read at bedtime. I went ahead and just bought it so we could not only finish it, but own it. I think these stories are just as good as the popular fairy tales, actually! The writing is really good, and each story is really engrossing and features one or more highly capable female who does something positive (at the least) or heroic (at best). And the stories are from many different cultures, and each one comes with an explanation of its origins. These are not only entertaining, but send a great message to girls--that women don't have to be helpless or evil like they are in most of the famous fairy tales.
Oooh! What a delight! I confess, Tatterhood has long been one of my favorite fairy tales. Truthfully, I'm a genuine fairy tale aficionado, so I've many favorites, but Tatterhood is right at the top of the heap, and thanks to this book? My list of favorites near the top has grown significantly larger. What a wonderful collection! Some hilarious, some profound; nearly all featuring strong female heroines, who cannot help but inspire. A wonderful collection. If you enjoy fairy tales, don't hesitate, this will become a treasured addition to your collection.
This book is awesome. Filled with tales both profound and funny. Accessible for younger audiences and fascinating for adults. I wish I'd had this growing up, but I will be happy to read it to my own children (and friends).
Not many pictures, but great stories for the imaginative mind and good subject matter for drawing and story-telling. When my kids were little, I bought this book in bulk for birthday presents for both girls and boys. Now I'm doing it with a new generation.
This book is a must for anyone who has a little girl. The stories in this anthology showcase feminine heroism in that the main protagonists, all of whom are female, succeed in achieving their goals through brains rather than brawn. That is of course with the notable exception of the tale of "Three Strong Women," which is a most amusing tale.
One of the best books for reading aloud to boys and girls. We read this to our son for years, and give it frequently as a gift to other kids ages 5 through 'tween'. Helps people of all ages see that resilience can start with awareness of, and action upon, other options. This collection of stories is being published again by the same author, half the stories at a time.
Great stories, well-written
