So when looking for books in the traditional literature genre, I decided now would be a great time to find out. After researching the traditional tale, I learned that Baba Yaga was an evil figure in Russian folklore, a witch and gruesome creature that was responsible for anything between kidnapping children to threatening to eat them.

She is usually portrayed as a witch who lives in the woods in a cabin standing on chicken legs and flies through the air committing evil acts. I felt for her as I read that she longed to be a babushka but knew that it would never be. As I followed her journey, I felt happy for her as she began to find her place in the village. Not only is the story written beautifully, but the illustrations are breathtakingly beautiful as well. She uses soft, light lines to create images which give a sense of imagination to the story.

The images tend to overlap and the colours mix to create detail in ever corner of the page. On many of the pages there are small fairy-like creatures that accompany Baba Yaga on her journey in the village. The presence of these fairies indicate that her charisma is present when she is experiencing what she has longed for- to share her life with a grandchild. In total, the moral, the writing and the illustrations add up to create a beautiful, touching story that I enjoyed reading in every respect.

One needs to look beyond hear-say and legend in order to see the truth in everyone. Throughout the story I felt a range of emotions including sad, sympathetic, hopeful, happy, excited and proud for Babushka Baba Yaga.

I think that alone, stands for a great piece of literature. Here is a link to some activities you can complete using Babushka Baba Yaga Posted by.
