This is a new adaptation of an Eastern European folktale for children aged 3–6.
The best-known ancient versions of the story are “Brother and Sister” by the Brothers Grimm, “Sister Alionushka, Brother Ivanushka” by the Russian Alexander Afanasyev (1826–1871), and the Hungarian version by Elek Benedek (1859–1929).
Two siblings are lost in an enchanted forest. Evil magic holds young Olena at the bottom of the lake, and her younger sister is turned into a goat by a cunning witch. When an even greater danger threatens her sister, Olena finds the strength to defeat the spell. Filled with magic and mystery, this beautifully illustrated picture book is perfect for young readers who love to explore the world of fairytales.
