The illustrations were also a good re [...]

It's not hard to guess the ending. However, since the parents messed up I would have liked to see a test or something they needed to do. That would make it more real since fairytales are about trials and such. Instead we have an insipid story that isn't worth reading twice.
Sweet Russian folktake, authored and illustrated by Carolyn Croll, in the style of one of our favorites - Tomie DePaola. I originally credited DePaola with this work. Many apologies to the actual author and illustrator - Carolyn Croll. The error was wholly unintentional.
Libby liked it was emotional (sad / happy)
