Girls Who Slay Monsters
It shouldn't be a surprise to learn just how smart, brave, and cool Irish women have always been. Girls Who Slay Monsters is a collection of stories about the Goddesses of Ancient Ireland, and all the amazing things they achieved.
From Tailtiu - Ireland's first farmer, to Boann, an explorer and river goddess who gave up her freedom to keep the people of Ireland safe - long forgotten Irish Goddesses are a diverse bunch, united by their strength, courage and heroic acts.
Author Ellen Ryan brings these Goddesses to life, describing each in a short story. Illustrated throughout by Shona Shirley, this book is perfect for younger readers with an interest in Irish mythology.
