A classic Russian folk tale for young and old alike.
A good fairy tale about Prince Peter. The prince journeys to find the firebird, which is stealing the golden apples from the kings orchard. The prince must complete three challenges, of increasing difficulty, to bring the firebird home. Will he be able to complete the journey? This is a good translation of a classic Russian folk tale.
I enjoy reading the folk tales of other countries. I am an American. I have heard many folk tales and fairy tales as told in my own country. I am often amazed at how different fairy tales become in other cultures. This one is very good. It is entertaining as written, with on son who does as told. The good son is easily overtaken, but wins in the end.
I believe my grandchildren would enjoy hearing this tale. It is well written and easily explained to the younger generation.
