Reviews

This collection of folktales from around the world presents a range of tales that all feature strong women. . . . Yolen's retellings are consistently engaging and well written."
--School Library Journal

"This is a spirited collection with a lively pace. . . . The stories sing and soar in Yolen's supple language, and each is contained enough for a read-aloud."
--Booklist

"What a treasure! Jane Yolen has retold these stories in the energetic, lucid, and poetic style that characterizes her writing and has brought her legions of fans. Her fresh and invigorating takes on these timeless tales of nonpareil heroes make this book a must for anyone interested in folklore, women's studies, and the very best of storytelling."
--Robert D. San Souci

"Not One Damsel in Distress glows with intelligence yet is eminently readable. It's hard to imagine any young woman opening this book and not finding something of herself--or the self she would like to be--in its pages. . . . Their stories are a chronicle of feminine strength, steadfastness, and resourcefulness through the ages and around the world. Carefully researched, delightfully told, this collection might well become a classic."
--Joseph Bruchac
