Firebird: written by Saviour Pirotta, illustrated by Catherine Hyde
Winner of the US Aesop Accolade Award 2012
Nominated for the Kate Greenaway Award
The Firebird is stealing the Tsar’s famous golden apples. His two oldest sons fail to capture the dazzling thief, so their younger brother, Ivan, must set out on a quest to find it. Befriended by the wise grey wolf, Ivan wins the Firebird and the hand of the beautiful Princess Helen.
“This is a spellbinding retelling of the classic Russian folktale that inspired Stravinsky’s famous ballet: a glorious quest for something so bright, it illuminates the human heart.”
