Synopsis

Baba Yaga by

Exciting stories from around the world told in fewer than 180 words, suitable for children who are starting to read independently. The series introduces readers to stories from other cultures and encourages them to find where the story comes from on a map. This tale comes from Russia. Baba Yaga is a mean witch who likes eating children! One day, a girl called Anya comes to Baba Yaga's hut. Can she escape being dinner? The tale has echoes of Hansel and Gretel where the child must escape the nasty witch. Puzzles at the back of the book encourage children to reread and retell the story in their own words, and helps build vocabulary by matching words to characters.
