This lexicon presents female figures turning into animals, known from myths, legends and tales. Taking the readers on a journey to various corners of the world — from the Land of Cherry Blossoms, to the United Kingdom, to the Amazon Rainforest — Anna Lewicka tells stories about forty women and their remarkable skills. Some of the figures can turn into animals on their own, others transform due to someone else’s intervention. Each shift has a purpose — of seeking help, deceiving others, catching prey or redeeming oneself. The wild women, marvellously illustrated by Klaudia Migacz, come to live before your eyes, showing the forms that they take according to beliefs professed almost all over the world. It is a great read for all Slavic and non-Slavic mythology lovers.
