Thumbs up Free (Kindle/Kobo/iTunes/ePub) Girls to the Rescue #1 [Kids Folklore Adventure Tales]

Girls to the Rescue Book #1: Tales of Clever, Courageous Girls from Around the World edited by Bruce Lansky is the 1st in a series of collections of girl-powered kids/tween adventure stories based on folklore, both newly-written and re-told from classic tales, free courtesy of publisher Simon & Schuster's Meadowbrook Press imprint.

This is a repeat from 2011, and we've previously received several other short stories excerpted from other volumes in this series and a similar other one also edited by Lansky, which are still free in multiple venues.

If it turns out you like these, there's an omnibus edition of volumes #1-7 currently priced at $21.99 CAD @ Kobo and doubtless other retailers as well (not couponable).

Currently free @ Amazon (available to Canadians and in the UK), Kobo & iTunes & Google Play (all available to Canadians).

ETA: Now also free @ B&N (also UK).

Description
In most heroic tales, a helpless young lady waits around for a prince to rescue her. But the spunky girls in this entertaining series are much too busy saving the day to await Prince Charming. These adaptations and original stories from around the world inspire readers to become a new kind of heroine. If you enjoy the stories in this book, look for more fun adventures in the other books in the series.

This first book contains the following short stories: "The Fairy Godmother's Assitant" (an original story), "Grandma Rosa's Bowl" (adapted from a Grimm Brothers' Story), "For Love of Sunny" (an original story), "Carla and the Greedy Merchant" (adapted from a folktale), "Savannah's Piglets" (adapted from a folktale), "Kimi Meets the Ogre" (an original story), "The Innkeeper's Wise Daughter" (retold from a Russian folktale), "The Royal Joust" (an original story), "Chardae's Thousand and One Nights" (adapted from a story in The Arabian Nights) and "Lian and the Unicorn" (an original story).

It should be free from B&N as well. I know that's where I got it back in the day.

Sorry about that; normally these things have the same ASIN for the same edition in the North American and UK, and I forgot to compare the ones I copy-pasted into my note-taking app (I don't keep the original tabs open after I've checked the price and grabbed a copy) when it came time for filling out all the stores.

Fixed now for all the offerings from this imprint, and thanks for catching it. And yeah, it should show up again at B&N eventually, but they've been kind of slow with the price-matching lately. Nevertheless, linkage for your price-drop check convenience @ B&N (also UK).
