REVIEW: The Tale of the FIREBIRD

In all the world there is said to be nothing more beautiful than the Firebird. When Ivan-Tsarevitch, youngest son of the Tsar, goes on a quest for the amazing bird, he finds himself flying over mountains and woods on a talking wolf, confronting a wicked Baba Yaga, and rescuing an enchanted princess from Koshchei the Immortal. But when he returns from his magical journey, he brings home the most precious treasure of all.

Gennady Spirin brings this original version of the Firebird tale from his native Russia and has illustrated it in his trademark rich, luminous style. This retelling of a classic is sure to become the new standard.

I have two daughters  so I LOVE to read to them, this book is one I have been dying to review this book, and I will tell you this book is so full of life! Each page is filled with amazing illustrations and the story will make you imagine your right there in the book. There are a total of 31 pages and in the back of the book there is a page from the Author who is from RUSSIA and the story is from three russian fairy tales, "Ivan- Tsarevitch and Gray Wolf". "Baba Yaga, and "Koshchei the Imortal". Gennady Spirin had received many awards for his illustrations and I can tell you , his illustrations are breath taking and this is not my first book I have read with his illustrations. Please if you have kids or grand kids this book is a must!
