In Russian folklore Baba Yaga (pronounced Buh Bah Yug Gah) is perhaps one of the most popular and recognizable characters. She is an old lady that lives deep in a forest in a hut on chicken legs. She flies around on a mortar, kidnaps small children, knows the presence of a human being by sniffing the air and knows many, many secrets. In most Russian folk tales, Baba Yaga is portrayed as a real witchy witch. She supposedly fries and eats humans, especially small children, but usually her horrifying intentions do not realize because her victims manage to escape at the last minute. Russian kids learn about Baba Yaga at early age; so, it is a good idea for anyone who wants to know about Russian language and culture to get familiar with the old lady. In this book, the reader will find four stories about Baba Yaga based on popular Russian fairy tales. The texts are edited for easier reading by all learners of Russian.
This book also available as Amazon MP3 download ( ASIN: B009B0DEDA). You can listen to an audio recording of these Russian texts.
