Baba Yaga flies through the air in her mortar, steering with a pestle and
sweeping up her tracks with a broom. Little Vassilisa's cruel stepmother
sends the clever girl through the forest to her aunt's house to borrow a
needle and thread. But Baba Yaga catches her and forces her to cook meals,
scrub the floors, and weave at the loom. Only Vassilisa's kindness to
Baba Yaga's cat, dog, and birch tree can save her. Bouncy songs, spooky
sounds and the voices of the witch and her animals bring this adventure to life.
For children ages 5 and up

Reviews

 
An entertaining yarn with vivid sound effects and vocal performances...
The music is an effective pastiche of orchestral instrumentation and
percussive jazz rhythms.
Lynne Heffley, Los Angeles Times

 
Baba Yaga the Witch is just perfect for Halloween, a radio play complete
with bouncy songs such as "Happily Ever After."
