Great stories, short, to short for my tasts but taken as a whole a good one evening read. These are very good for girls whih couragous heart and mind who generally lack a strong written role model, ie. Wonder Woman.

More f this needs to be written as half of our population lacks this type of writting.

Recomended for all.
