A story collection about women with power and how they used it … These queen stories are not fairytales for small children. They are true tales of real women that every young person should know. The clever and brave women in this collection had power and used it to achieve their goals. They would prove themselves pioneers, problem-solvers and inventors and, often, incredible leaders. These fast-paced, action-packed tales are stories that have been lost, stories that have remained untold. The stories come from around the world and across history, but the single thing they share is that each is, in their own way, about a truly courageous queen.
