The Door by the Staircase
A little over a year ago I had barely heard of Baba Yaga but in the last year I have read several stories featuring the old Russian witch ;0 In this tale Baba Yaga is living near Buffalo and "adopts" a yong girl. Of course, Mary doesn't know that Baba Yaga, or Madame Z as she first knows her, has plans to eat Mary. Slowly though Baba Yaga comes to love Mary and starts teaching her things. Mary isn't sure whether she can trust Baba Yaga but in the end finds a family and friends.
A solid choice...not something I will gush over but good. I am starting to recognize certian aspects of a Baba Yaga tale so some things seemed familiar to me.
