"A cruel stepmother wants to get rid of her stepdaughter forever, so she sends the girl on an errand. And who is she sent to see? Baba Yaga, the one who lives in the hut on chicken legs!
"But the little girl is clever, and knows how to turn Baba Yaga's faithful servants against her. She gives a beautiful kerchief to the maid. She gives ham to the cat and bread to the dogs. Oil on the creky gates and a ribbon on the birch tree complete her escape - back to the home of her father, who learns all about his new wife's treachery."; 9¾" - 12" Tall
