The quality of the structure of the book was a disappointment. There was an ink smudge on one page, another page was crumpled, and the last page was glued to the back cover. When that glued page was lifted, a stamped message said "out of print.... The book was printed overseas and looked like a knockoff.
Baba Yaga has never seemed so scary and so funny at the same time. The illustrations are charming, from the green-faced grandma to the chicken-legged house and the story with the perfect resolution is one that children will ask to hear again and again.
Glad I found this book! It was my daughter’s favorite when she was small. Now my grandchildren can enjoy it too!
An hysterical version of Baba Yaga!
My daughter remembered my reading this book to her as a child. She wanted a copy to keep to remember those days.
After reading Grandma Chickenlegs, my two year old daughter could not stop talking about her. Grandma Chickenlegs is a bit frightening, but the polite, friendly girl prevails in the end. I've decided to purchase the hardcover book to give to my daughter when she's a bit a reminder of a book that had a bit of an impact in many ways!
We borrowed Grandma Chickenlegs from the library, and it's the first book in a very long time that my 6 year-old has asked to buy. The writing is more interesting than any of the other versions of Baba Yaga that we've read, and the illustrations are wonderful.
