Once long ago in a faraway kingdom there lived a great tsar who had three sons. When it came time for them to marry, the tsar called the princes to his side and said: String your bows with the strength of ten men, and shoot an arrow as far as youMoreOnce long ago in a faraway kingdom there lived a great tsar who had three sons. When it came time for them to marry, the tsar called the princes to his side and said: String your bows with the strength of ten men, and shoot an arrow as far as you can into the heart of Russia. Whoever finds your arrow shall be your pride.From the heart of Russia comes the tale of the tsars youngest son, Ivan.

Ivan thinks himself cursed when he finds his arrow in a swamp, held in the mouth of a little green frog. The frog, of course, is no frog at all, but Vasilisa the Wise, a stunning young lady trapped by her fathers spell. Through ancient, faraway forests Ivan must rescue Vasilisa from the castle of Koshchei the Invincible.Vasilisa the Wise is famed in Russian folklore for her mastery of household arts and especially for her exquisite embroidery.

Each page of this sumptuously illustrated book is bordered with examples of embroidery, rendered in extraordinary detail, as are the haunting paintings by the brilliant Russian artist Gennady Spirin. The magical world created by acclaimed storyteller J. Patrick Lewis will bring readers of every age into this Kingdom beyond Blue Kingdoms.
