This is one of the treasures, long lost, of my childhood. Honestly, if you have any aesthetic sense, or if you wish to cultivate an appreciation for skillfulness and beauty in a child, this is THE book to give and share with read-aloud time. It is one of the best ever picture books of Russian Fairy Tales.
Now, if someone could just tell me how to find the other lost treasure of my childhood, the Russian Fairy Tale collection with the story of the white, yellow, and blue Butterfly that saves the life of the young czarina and turns out to be the soul of the former czarina, I will be in seventh heaven.

This book contains a huge number of stories which is good and not-so-good. Some stories are very short and they're called "anecdotes" and read like jokes. Others are longer and fall into the traditional rhythm of a folk tale. However, there is not a lot of variety between the stories. I've read about 3/4 of the book and I've found that many stories follow the same pattern. That is, they're very alike. This is not a criticism; they're old folktales after all. But if you're looking for the "best of the bunch", you'll have to wade through a lot of stories that aren't.

First off, let me say this is a big book. Not physically big, or heavy mind you, but almost 700 pages, and it's jammed with tales, so for the price you're getting content. The picture also doesn't do the cover justice, it even looks nice sitting up there on your bookshelf.

If you like Russian folk tales, or folk tales in general, you'll like this compilation. I haven't gone through the whole thing, but I recognized a few tales from when I was a kid like Vasilisa the Beautiful. It's illustrated, but it's more of a book/book than anything, so if you're getting it to read for your kid I'd wait until they're maybe in the 5 and above range at least.

It's certainly comprehensive, but the writing in no way captures the magic of the original. Russian fairy tales have something both mysterious and layered yet very whimsical about them ... this feels like it's trying too hard to capture the 'olden' language rather than the true spirit of the works. Fairy tales should be a pleasure to read, not an academic exercise.

What can I say? Although I am getting into "advanced years", I am still a child at heart who is delighted and entranced with fairy tales of all kinds. This is a recent purchase, so for the most part will be held for winter reading by the fire side. I became interested in Russian fairy tales from admiring beautiful hand painted, lacquered Russian boxes on a web site which included snippets of the fairy tales which the decorations portrayed. How fortunate that I could find this large book of Russian fairy tales translated into English for my reading enjoyment!

These stories seem to be a part of a cultural life, clearly Russian, that one can take a hold of. My own sense of having a Russian heritage adds to my interest, but the stories themselves are immediately captivating, and the nature of fairy tales is that one's mind works, and delights in both developing problem and solution. I personally have become acquainted with a body of tales from several to numerous cultures; this invests us in some of the richness that surrounds us. These particular stories have a very plucky, vital quality, and sound good in the telling and spelling out. I would recommend this version, because of the fun it is to open up and read to oneself or aloud to others.

I got this book to read to my 4 1/2 year old daughter. I have been reading her a few a night and she loves them. There are tons of short fairy tales which are both magical and fun. I can easily read two a night for months! Many stories involve Baba Yaga who is one of our favorite characters. I like the fact that "witches" and other magical beings represent complex characters capable of both good and evil. This is in stark contrast to many more well known fairy tales where the witch, is portrayed to be just evil. The stories are also less dark and frightening and frequently funnier. The book uses a rich vocabulary which is proving a valuable tool in teaching my daughter as well as myself. In short, I like it and strongly recommend it.
I was disappointed because the cover of the copy I recieved was plain and not as pictured, but otherwise the book is a wonderful collection of (gruesome) fairytales (that are definitely not for children).
