    I felt a bit ambivalent concerning some of the gender stereotypes, but enjoyed the grrl power. I wish they hadn't to all get married as the "happily ever after" but I suppose that would be asking too much.

    This book is a folk tale unlike the others that I read for this assignment and many others that I have read previously. This book would be best suited for older elementary students I believe, as there are many twists and turns as well as higher levels of vocabulary most likely not suitable for younger elementary students. In this story four sisters, after the death of their mother, decide to dress themselves as boys for 7 years in hopes of finding prosperous jobs before they meet one another ag [...]

    This has been a family favorite for a couple of years. We originally got it for a Book Club Party featuring Jeanne Birdsall's The Penderwicks. (We got it used from a library, I'm not even sure it is still in print.) Four orphaned sisters dress as boys, become apprentices and then use their talents to rescue a princess, during the adventure they become best friends with the brothers of the princess, and eventually reveal they are women and marry their princely friends. My four girls have spend ho [...]

    I really liked this cobbled together folktale--Kimmel states that he adapted 2 different Grimm Brothers' stories into this one story.

    Yet another wonderful fairy tale adaptation by Eric Kimmel, this story tells of four sisters, who, upon their mothers' death, decide to dress as men in order to learn trades and not be forced into a life of dependency. The oldest sister becomes a tailor, the second learns hunting, the third develops sleight of hand, and the fourth becomes a stargazer. When a fearful dragon kidnaps a princess and her four brothers, the sisters get a chance to prove their skills, but find it difficult to maintain [...]

    The Fours Gallant Sisters, is a story about ho four sisters make a life for themselves in a man’s world. They each learn a different trade, job. This story would be good to read hen learning about fantasy or how society treats men and women differently. Students can write down what was expected of the sisters and what they if instead and compare it to societies thoughts on what omen should do today and what the children want to grow up to be.

    The babyish almost comic-book style of the art in this picture book ruined this already somewhat predictable retelling of a less-known Grimm's fairytale. Not one of Kimmel's best adaptations.

    I love this book. The illustrations and the story. Decades later I tracked it down again to buy.

    Wonderful telling. Pictures (especially faces) could be better.

    One of my ALL TIME FAVORITES. I used to have the whole book memorized and would recite it to my younger family friends. Absolutely awesome. My favorite was always the Finger Artist!

    Picture Book: I loved this story, girl power! I wasn't as much of a fan of the illustrationsbut the story was fantastic! I would definitely use this in my classroom.
