Uninvited to Tzar Yaroslav's coronation, Baba Yaga appears nevertheless. In the witch's hand is a firebird, which she thrusts at Yaroslav. Keep it safe and happy, she warns the tzar, or "you shall go to the Outermost Edge of the World."

Nothing arouses in the tzar such fear as the Outermost Edge of the World, since it is a place he has never been and imagines as "dark and dank and dismal and filled with loathsome, hideous creatures." And so he begins the tedious task of catering to a firebird.

But for how long can the tzar tend the firebird, singing to it daily and baking it the little honey cakes it loves so well? Certainly, not forever.

Readers will be fascinated by Ann Tompert's original folktale about a tzar's discovery, that no fear is more frightening--or more foolish--than that of the unknown. And they'll delight in Robert Rayevaky's stunning stylized painting, which depict his rich Russian heritage.

The First American Edition copy (stated with full number line) is in excellent condition, both book and dustjacket are without writing, marks or tears, minimal cover wear including some rippling of rear dustjacket and edges. There are no remainder marks, the dustjacket is not price-clipped and this is not an ex-library copy.
