KIRKUS REVIEW

Foolish youngest brother Ivan catches a pike that promises him as many wishes as he likes for its freedom. At first, the wishes get Ivan into comical trouble; eventually, they also lead to his marrying the tsar's daughter. With heroic figures engaged in the lively action, and with loving attention to opulent detail, Spirin evokes a traditional setting.
