Product Description

When Luba helps a frightened wren, it promises to grant her any wish she wants. "I am content, I have no wish," Luba says. But her parents convince Luba to ask for a bigger house, then an estate, and then a palace. With each wish Luba hopes her parents will be satisfied, but instead they only want more. They force Luba to ask the wren to make them the rulers of the Ukraine, then of all the Russians, and finally the Emperor and Empress of the world! Where will it end? This Russian version of The Fisherman and His Wife masterfully illustrates the rewards of simplicity and the dangers of greed.

Publisher's Description

When Luba helps a frightened wren, it promises to grant all of her wishes. "I am content, I have no wish," Luba says-at first. Then Luba's parents convince her to ask for a bigger house. After that, they want an estate, and later, they ask for a palace. With the granting of each wish Luba hopes her parents will be satisfied, but instead they only want more. Where will it end? This Russian version of The Fisherman and His Wife masterfully illustrates the rewards of simplicity and the dangers of greed.

"Polacco's freely brushed watercolors are bright with decorative borders, richly patterned clothing, and exotic onion domes." (Booklist)
