Baba Yaga is a witch famous throughout Russia for eating children, but this Babushka Baba Yaga is a lonely old woman who just wants a grandchild - to love.

Critic reviews

"Sumptuous colors, a rich melange of patterns and textures - and even a sprinkling of forest fairies." (Publishers Weekly)

"A warm, lively tale, neatly mixing new and old and illustrated with Polacco's usual energetic action, bright folk patterns, and affectionate characterizations." (Kirkus Reviews

"Kids will respond to the joyful story of the outsider who gets to join in, and Polacco's richly patterned paintings of Russian peasant life on the edge of the woods are full of light and color." (Booklist
