“This graphic novel follows the story of Masha, a young teen. After the death of her grandmother, Masha doesn’t know what to do with her life. Her father is absent, more involved with his fiancé than his daughter. When Masha discovers an ad seeking an assistant for Baba Yaga, she ventures into the woods to apply. To earn her place, Masha must pass a series of tests, outfox a territorial bear, and make dinner for her host. No easy task, with children on the menu!
Spooky and poignant, Marika McCoola’s stunning debut-with richly layered art by acclaimed graphic artist Emily Carroll-is a storytelling feat and a visual feast.”
Kirkus Starred Review“A magnificently magical must-read for all fairy-tale fans.”
