This is an exciting story for children ages 4-8. Baba Yaga, a witch, uses a trick to catch a young man, who cleverly avoids being eaten. The illustrations, using simple shapes and bold colors, are based on a style of Russian folk art that dates back to the seventeenth century. Also by Ms. Arnold: Baba Yaga and the Little Girl (North South Books; $14.95) and Knock, Knock, Teremok! (North South Books; $7.95).
