REVIEW of: Baba Jaga

Baba Jaga


Once upon a time, in a land far away from here, lived a girl named Olga. Olga lived with her father in a beautiful house, and they were very happy together. Until Olga’s father one day fell in love again … His new wife was cruel and mean. And her sister Baba Yaga, who lived in a dark forest, was even meaner. Baba Yaga was a real witch! There was a rumor she was fond of children … on her plate! One day Olga’s stepmother sent her to Baba Yaga. What was she supposed to do now?
Baba Yaga, the witch from Slavonic mythology is coming alive in this fairy tale. An Leysen takes you on a journey in an imaginative story about a wicked witch and a sweet and brave little girl.
Where to start first, the art work is fantastic, but this Baba Jaga story was almost to close to the Hansel and Gretel story. I think this is the Russian version of the German version of Hansel and Gretel.Not much more to say about this because if you have read the Hansel and Gretel story, then you know the Baba Jaga. 
I received this book as a Kindle download free in exchange I offer my honest opinion.
