Rozzer | 13 comments Lydia Chukovskaya appears to have a stellar reputation in Russian children's literature. I've never read her. Can anyone here recommend any particular translation of any of her works?

Really? I had no idea. Her father, Korney Chukovsky wrote for children but not her. I've only heard of her a poet ( a really good one) she was also the lifelong assistant and secretary of the poet Anna Akhmatova. I'm not sure even know about any children's books written by her but thanks for letting us know.

Here's a book I want to read: "The Akhmatova Journals" by Lydia Chukovskaya.
