Reviews

"Tales about witches have never been more popular, and Sibelan Forrester's selection of folktales featuring the Russian witch Baba Yaga is a welcome addition to our stories featuring them. This is a solid contribution to the growing body of translations of Russian tales into English. A foreword by folklorist Jack Zipes adds to the quality of this attractively illustrated volume of folk stories. It's great fun for readers of all ages!"

--Jack V. Haney, editor and translator of The Complete Russian Folktale and Long, Long Tales from the Russian North
