About this title

Synopsis:

What if someone was making life was miserable for everyone in your village? Things are about to change when Baba Yaga sends her son to torment a wise young girl. Kate, a young girl is ready for bed and her Grandmother Emma proposes to tell a story. The grandmother often tells stories from the Bible or one of the folk stories she learned when growing up. That evening she proposes a story about Baba Yaga and a wise young girl. Baba Yaga is a wicked sorceress who lives in a damp house in a dark forest. She has special powers and has managed to gain control over the King of Winter and the Queen of Summer. She commands them to destroy the lives of people in the villages. Then they meet a young girl and the conflict begins. When Grandmother Emma finishes telling the story, she explains lessons to be learned. This opens a discussion with Kate on what it means to be wise leading to some insights into the very real conflict between good and evil. Pointing to a heavenly faith, the story leads to the love and forgiveness of God. This illustrated folk story is told in the same tradition as the Grimm Brothers and Hans Christian Anderson. These give us deeper life teachings than what we find in many of today’s children’s books. With a simple story like this we can learn valuable lessons like the importance of hard work and the shame of laziness. It teaches the value of the human soul and the very real conflict between good and evil. In his “author’s notes” at the end of the story, Cass Tell, gives further insights on Christian faith. The Wise Girl and Baba Yaga’s Son is a story that children will enjoy, not only for the thrill of the read, but also for the after-thoughts that follow. It facilitates discussion points and teachable moments that parents would enjoy with their children.
