There are way more exciting heroines out there than Dora the Explorer and those ghastly Saddle Club chickadees. A Mighty Girl (who's tagline is the marvellous "The world's largest collection of books and movies for smart, confident, and courageous girls") lists 75 dashing candidates in this terrific round-up. As well as the familiar Anne, Pippi, Harriet and Charlotte, try books like The Penderwicks, 11 Birthdays and Glory Be on for size. My favourites were always Trixie Belden (who A Mighty Girl seems to have overlooked! No!) and Nancy Drew books. I've always loved a mystery!
