I just saw this today on Should Be Reading blog.
This teaser is two sentences from Not One Damsel In Distress: World Folktales for Strong Girls. The book is suitable for children aged ten and up. I love it. If the teaser sparks your interest, your local library should have a copy.
These sentences are from the Argentinian folktale “The Girl and the Puma.”
“They were reduced to eating rats, frogs, roots, even the leather from the boots. Some turned to cannibalism, devouring the flesh of those people who died before them.“ Pg.27 of hardcover.
