Baba Yaga's Assistant - Marika McCoola, Emily Carroll
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

A delightful read about a young woman applying to be Baba Yaga's assistant. I love the idea of this book and I especially liked Baba Yaga's character in it. She is so feisty and fierce. 

Going into it, you really don't even have to know much about the traditional Baba Yaga stories. The story does a good job of introducing her character throughout the story so it is easy to learn as you go. 

The story incorporates flashbacks as well as scenes from traditional Baba Yaga stories. There is a lot going on. However, it is really easy to keep everything straight because the artwork varies for each story line. Great way to keep the reader engaged and interested.

Great book. I really enjoyed the retelling.
