A war-weary king strikes a bargain with a wizard and his supernatural bird in this enchanting fable from old Russia. Elaine Pogány's adaptation of the beloved story by Alexander Pushkin sweeps readers of all ages into a lively tale that unfolds against a colorful panorama of palaces and forests populated by princesses, peasants, and soldiers.
This classic work receives a stunning artistic treatment from one of the masters of book illustration, Willy Pogány, whose evocative pictures adorn many of the pages. Full-page color images, along with striking black-and-white drawings, depict memorable scenes from a timeless tale of magic and adventure.
