In a certain kingdom, in a certain land, there lives a witch
called Baba Yaga, a prince by the name of Ivan, a serpent
with twelve heads that plunges the land into darkness,
a wood sprite that talks to the moon, a feather that
becomes a prince when it touches the ground, a princess
who has magic at her fingertips, a terrifying sorcerer who
cannot be killed ...
In this land, riddles have to be solved, perilous worlds
ventured into, heroic feats performed, disasters averted,
before the princes, princesses, or even ordinary folk, can
find true love and live happily ever after.
This book leads you into that land by bringing to you
some of its best-loved tales—the Russian folktales.
Sometimes dark, often funny, heart-warming and full of
adventure, they will entertain young and old alike.
