Summary :
Several famous Russian fairy tales with color illustrations by Ivan Bilibin. The tales were recorded by folklorist Alexander Afanasyev, who collected and published more than 600 Russian folk tales in the middle 19th century.

Review : 
Hmm. Well. I liked half of the stories? But they got very samey after a while. Boy oh boy, are the names Ivan and Vasilisa ever popular.

All the Baba Yagas and creepy wooden dolls were the best. Also, gray wolf was a chill guy~ and why aren’t women freaking out about falcons flying into their rooms and turning into beautiful men, or is this just something that happens in Russia?
