User Review  - lizatoad - LibraryThing

This book is spectacularly beautiful. Demi's illustrations are magical. They pull in traditional Russian folk arts and blend them with Asia traditions and attention to detail. The paint used in the printing of this edition literally makes the pages glow. It would make a spectacular gift. Read full review
