In the Russian winter, in the depths of the forest, a whole village gathers together by the blazing fire. Then the storyteller arrives and the whole audience listens with bated breath. The award-winning novelist, James Riordan, has collected and translated some of these stories from original sources and retold them for children. Here are stories about flying ships, snow maidens, fire birds, frog princesses, Misha the Bear, Ivan the Fool, and Baba Yaga, the fearsome witch. With evocative pictures by Andrew Breakspeare, this is a book that will transport you into the world of Russian myths and magic.
