Children's Book Description

Baba Yaga is a witch famous throughout Russia for eating children, but this Babushka Baba Yaga is a lonely old woman who just wants a grandchild - to love.

Book excerpt:

She was the last of her kind. A creature of legends. A being of the forest. She ruled her woods alone. She ate alone and slept alone, her loneliness made more bitter by the stories that were told of her -- stories of the terrible, horrible Baba Yaga.

And so she watched sadly from afar as the people of the nearby village celebrated the seasons of their lives together, kept holidays together and rejoiced at weddings.

Most of all they pleasured in the birth of their young....

Review

"Kids will respond to the joyful story of the outsider who gets to join in, and Polacco's richly patterned paintings of Russian peasant life on the edge of the woods are full of light and color." ~Booklist

"A warm, lively tale, neatly mixing new and old and illustrated with Polacco's usual energetic action, bright folk patterns, and affectionate characterizations." ~Kirkus Reviews

About the Author / Illustrator

Patricia Polacco is the author and illustrator of several picture books for children. She was born in Lansing, Michigan. Her early years were spent in her grandmother's farm in Union City, Michigan - the setting for many of her stories. As a child, she struggled in school due to dyslexia. She was unable to read until she was 14 years old. She was teased by children and hid her disability until a teacher helped her. Thank you, Mr. Falker recounts this time of her life.
