Description of this Book

Jane Yolen is a phenomenon: a poet and a mythmaker, who understands how old stories can tell us new things. We are lucky to have her. --Neil Gaiman A young woman discovers the power to speak up and take control of her fate--a theme that has never been more timely than it is now... You think you know this story. You do not. A harsh, controlling father. A quiescent mother. A house that feels like anything but ahome. Natasha gathers the strength to leave, and comes upon a little house in the wood: A house that walks about on chicken feet and is inhabited by a fairy tale witch. In finding Baba Yaga, Natasha finds her voice, her power, herself.... A mythic yet timely novel-in-verse by the beloved and prolific author and poet Jane Yolen, the Hans Christian Andersen of America.
