Illustration from the story 'Baba Yaga' from 'Round the World Fairy Tales' retold by Amabel Williams-Ellis. Illustrated by William Stobbs. My version published by Peal Press First edition Blackie and Son
BABA YAGA - (Баба-яга) is one of the most ancient characters in Slavic mythology. Her image draws closer to the image of a common witch but however Baba-Yaga is a creature much more dangerous and powerful than any witch.
