Baba Yaga’s Assistant

I heard about Marika McCoola’s new book, Baba Yaga’s Assistant, almost by accident.  I had mentioned Anya’s Ghost to a friend, and she thought I might like Baba Yaga’s Assistant as well.

Illustrated by Emily Carroll (whose Through the Woods is fantastic and also highly recommended!), the narrative is a fantastic weave of past and present, and the art lends itself perfectly to the idea of growing up through tragedy and fantasy.

It’s a quick read, but you’ll definitely want to take time to get lost in the artwork!
