Sinopsis: ""A disarmingly direct and authentic introduction to the well-known witch. . . . Arnold emulates traditional Russion 'lubok' art . . . in a vivid, energetic style that's a beautiful complement to the lively story. Sure to draw readers with its jewel-bright colors and pleasingly gruesome witch"".--Kirkus. Full color.
From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 4-Bold illustrations combine with an absorbing story to create a Baba Yaga who definitely means business. For the text, Arnold has used her own translation of "Tereshichka," a tale collected by Aleksandr Afanas'ev in the 19th century. In a prefatory note, she explains Baba Yaga's role in Russian folklore, cites her source, and describes the media she used for the illustrations. Longing for a baby, a couple wrap a piece of wood in a blanket and rock it to sleep in a cradle. When the wood is transformed into a little boy, the delighted pair name him Tishka and raise him as a son. Although he has been warned about Baba Yaga, the boy is tricked by the evil witch and taken home to be her dinner. In a plot twist reminiscent of the Grimms' "Hansel and Gretel," Tishka feigns ignorance and asks Baba Yaga's daughter to show him how to enter the oven. In the process, the girl becomes the witch's main course and Tishka hides in a tree. Discovering she has eaten her own daughter, Baba Yaga flies into a rage and tries to cut down the tree with her iron teeth. A goose flying overhead saves the boy and is later rewarded with food and a warm home. The story's more brutal elements are nicely balanced by Arnold's extraordinary artwork and her storytelling talent. Inspired by Russian folk art, the vibrant illustrations are done in gouache on watercolor paper and outlined with heavy black lines. Their size influences the pace of the book-small ones accompany the pages of text; full-page and double-page spreads mirror the important plot twists. Suitable for sharing aloud with older children, Arnold's depiction of Baba Yaga pulls very few punches. In the process, it presents a slice of Russian folklore in an authentic and masterful style.
