Illustrated stories from around the world that celebrate female characters in ancient myths and legends.

Goddesses and Heroines tells the tales of inspirational female characters from ancient myth and legend which all too often go untold. Performance storyteller Xanthe Gresham-Knight draws on original texts and lends renewed relevance to stories from cultures around the world.

We meet the youthful Aphrodite, the girl who created the world through imagination and sheer willpower; Hecate, the math whiz whose political drama on Mount Olympus saw her topple the powers that be; the heroic Mulan, whose bravery, athleticism, and cross-dressing helped her bypass gender barriers in ancient China; Osun, the Nigerian goddess who proved that unless we live as one, we will never truly be free; and the not-so-fair-y Russian godmother Baba Yaga, Goddesses and Heroines is a must-have for young readers who love myth and storytelling.
