A great book to have students make predictions about. A kind of "circle story" kind of ends the way it begins - good model for writing a circle story. Surprises you in the end. However, the writing at the beginning was very simple. It improved throughout the book.

This is a humorous and entertaining tale about Baba Yaga and Ivan the fool. The story is an original one, but incorporates elements of classic Russian fairy tales. Overall, we thought this was a fun story to read aloud and we enjoyed reading it together.
