The premise is promising: Baba Yaga, yearning to have grandchildren like the babushkas she espies near her forest home, disguises herself as one of them covering her tall, pointy ears and joins the old women chatting in the square. There, she hears of Natasha, who has no babushka to care for her child; Baba Yaga volunteers and is soon a loving family member—until little Victor is frightened by the other babushkas' tales of fearsome Baba Yaga, and our Baba Yaga retreats once more to her forest.

At this point, Polacco resorts to a classic but pat conclusion: Victor, menaced by wolves, is rescued by Baba Yaga, who's then welcomed back: "Those who judge one another on what they hear or see, and not on what they know of them in their hearts, are fools indeed! Still, even without a more original resolution: a warm, lively tale, neatly mixing new and old and illustrated with Polacco's usual energetic action, bright folk patterns, and affectionate characterizations.

Picture book. A sweet, soft conversation starter and a charming gift. One more myth dispelled for all the students who believe that their teachers live in their classrooms.

During the last week of school, Mrs. Hartwell and her students reflect on the things they will miss, while also looking forward to the fun that summer will bring. The kids want to cheer up their teacher, whom they imagine will be crying over lesson plans and missing them all summer long. But what gift will cheer her up? Numerous ideas are rejected, until Eddie comes up with the perfect plan. They all cooperate to create a rhyming ode to the school year and their teacher.

She perfectly captures the emotional trauma the students imagine their teachers will go through as they leave for the summer. Her final illustration hysterically shatters that myth, and will have every teacher cheering aloud.

In Russian folklore, Baba Yaga flies around in a mortar , wields a pestle , and dwells deep in the forest in a hut usually described as standing on chicken legs.

According to Vladimir Propp 's folktale morphology, Baba Yaga commonly appears as either a donor , villain , or may be altogether ambiguous.
