4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty decent book September 30, 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book to read to my son as I want him to speak both Russian and English languages. I'm Russian and my husband is American so we are raising a bi-lingual child..well, trying. The quality of the book is great. I didn't expect that but even paperback is thick and paper is high quality. The fairy tales are just like I remember them from my childhood. The only downside is that it's too short. I wish there were more stories in it or series of books.

More About the Author

Ivan Bilibin (1876-1942) was a Russian book illustrator and stage designer.

He was born in 1876 in a suburb of St. Petersburg. In 1898 he studied at Anton Azbe Art School in Munich, then under Ilya Repin in St. Petersburg. In 1902-1904 Bilibin traveled in the Russian North, where he became fascinated with old wooden architecture and Russian folklore. Bilibin gained renown in 1899, when he released his illustrations of Russian fairy tales. In 1905-1910 he illustrated Pushkin's fairy tales: The Tale of Tsar Saltan and The Tale of the Golden Cockerel. His later works include stage and costume design for Russian operas and ballets. Bilibin died in 1942 during the Siege of Leningrad.
