What to Read After... The Snowman 09/12/19
King Vaslav offers to give half of his kingdom to whoever can catch the Firebird who has been stealing his golden-skinned apples, and his sons set off on a complicated quest for the bird full of adventures of shape changing and magic.
This is a wonderful retelling of the classic Russian folk tale about the quest for the elusive Firebird, written in celebration of the centenary of Stravinsky's famous ballet, which was inspired by this story. Catherine Hyde's beautiful, atmospheric paintings perfectly capture the fairytale quality of the story.
