I liked all the different stories/legends. Be aware, one part of the book is about finding naked girls.
age 8+

One thing surprised me!

The story had a beautiful message. Beautifully written! However, for parents who are looking for a clean book without "romance" for younger readers, there is a chapter where a boy likes a girl. How the boy meets the girl was a bit of a surprise as well. The rating for this category was 0 but I would put 1 for it.

This title has:

Educational value
Great messages
Great role models
