Brimming with colorful characters and miraculous feats, these are time-honored tales with a uniquely Russian tone. Selections include "Vasilisa the Beauty," a story combining elements from "Cinderella" and "Hansel and Gretel;" "The Little Sister and Little Brother," in which an evil witch is deceived by two orphans; along with "The White Duckling," "The Bright-Hawk's Feather," "Ivan and the Gray Wolf," "Marya Morevna," and "The Frog-Queen."
Superbly translated by noted American scholar Nathan Haskell Dole, this is an enchanting book for fairy tale lovers of all ages.
