This heart-warming Ukrainian folktale, set during the Great Famine of the 1930s, tells of a young girl's attempts to save her village from starvation. When soldiers take the village's wheat, Marusia hides just enough to survive. She and her father share with the other villagers over the winter, then plant the few remaining grains in the spring. A gigantic stalk of magical wheat grows attracting the attention of an equally large and magical stork. The stork flies with Marusia on a magical journey to the prairies, where farmers give Marusia enough wheat for her village. Word of the magical journey reaches a greedy officer, who tricks the stork into retracing the magical journey. But the officer does not understand the meaning of "enough" and his greed leads to his doom. Back in the village, Marusia and her father know they must devise a clever plan to protect their wheat from other greedy soldiers . . . and perhaps from the dictator himself!

From the Author:

I did not know about the Ukrainian Famine until the mid-1980s, when I read Robert Conquest's Harvest of Sorrow. I wanted to write about this great tragedy in a way that preserved the dignity of those who were killed, while at the same time, informing readers of this little-known genocide. In Enough, the reader is able to step into the shoes of Marusia and feel what it must have been like to live during a time when all the food was confiscated and people were left to die because of a far-off dictator's ideology about who deserved to live.

From the Inside Flap:

This heartwarming Ukrainian folktale, set during the Famine of the 1920s, tells of a young girl's attempts to save her village from starvation. Marusia's ingenuity gives her the opportunity to go on a magical journey to the North American Prairies to find more food for her village.

Generosity triumphs over greed in this spiritedUkrainian folktale.
