THE RUNAWAY SOLDIER And Other Tales of Old Russia

Folk tales from childhood memories, here retold for American children. There are some that bear close parallels to old favorites, with just an extra twist or a different slant (such as a Russian Hop-o-my-Thumb). They are simplified in the telling for five to seven year olds. And they have full measure of kings and nobles, peasants, and animals, rewards for virtue and punishment for wickedness.
