Ransome, Arthur: Old Peter's Russian Tales. v1, 12 Feb 2008
Arthur Ransome's masterly retelling of the beautiful fairy tales of old Russia was his first book for children. Generation after generation has thrilled to the story of Baba Yaga, the witch with iron teeth; the tale of the Little Daughter of the Snow, who melted for lack of love, and many others. Ransome visited Russia before the Revolution and heard these stories first-hand from the people he met there.
