Twenty-five great stories about twenty-five clever and courageous girls!
In most fairy tales, the helpless girl waits around for a prince to rescue her. But the girls featured in the Girls to the Rescue series' seven books are not only smart, they're also spunky enough to save the day when the going gets tough. And the response to the series from girls, parents, teachers, booksellers, and reviewers has been overwhelmingly positive. For The Best of Grils to the Rescue, Bruce Lansky selected twenty-five stories that rise above the rest.
