For many young women, the only fairy tales they know are the ones that have been retold by Walt Disney Studios. Once upon a time, these stories of magical transformation were meant for young women as they grew away from childhood and towards adulthood. They were told by their mothers and grandmothers and the wise women of the clan as they spun and wove and stirred their pots and made their potions. And, contrary to popular opinion, marrying a prince was not the only goal.

The prince agrees that Vasilisa is, indeed, wise, as Satver had proclaimed. Everything was forgiven and Staver and Vasilisa drink, eat and are joyful

The prince agrees that Vasilisa is, indeed, wise, as Satver had proclaimed. Everything was forgiven and Staver and Vasilisa drink, eat and are joyful. The pictures show the characters in traditional garb, the buildings ar decorated in the Russian style, but the style of the illustrations is not the traditional Russian style. Additional information.

But Vassilisa disguises herself as an ambassador from the dreaded Tartar Horde, demanding tribute. Challenged to a series of contests-wrestling, archery, chess-she wins them all, and graciously agrees to accept the hand of the royal princess in lieu of 12 years' tribute, converting that in turn to Staver's freedom. San Souci's dark, formally framed watercolors pay appropriate tribute to the exotic setting, though his evocative landscapes are more successful than his rather stolid figures.

  • From the moment I first read a copy from our local library, I knew this story deserved a place in our permanent home collection. It portrays a strong female character, a beautiful marriage relationship where both man and woman were respected as intelligent and respectful to each other while not showcasing this woman's unique strengths! She's a heroine that I hope my daughter grows up to emulate!

  • My kids love this fairy tale. Not only does it include a Russian Saint, but it ends a saintly story full of humor, learned lessons, humility, and true love. I highly recommend it.
