TSAR SALTAN by Alexander Pushkin
Released: Sept. 10, 2011

"Rich in plot—and the inspiration for a popular opera by Rimsky-Korsakov—but with the look and language of an early-20th-century period piece. (iPad storybook app. 10-12, adult)"
Interactive features seem thrown in as afterthoughts, but ornately detailed new illustrations in a pre-Soviet-era style give this edition of a classic Russian short story some visual interest. Read full book review >

A tale by Pushkin, based—according to the copyright page—on a translation by Pauline Hejl and adapted for the picture-book form. Read full book review >
