Description
While living in Russia, Leo Tolstoy operated a tiny school on the grounds of his estate, teaching peasant children to read, write, and draw. He found there was a shortage of folktales and fables for children and so wrote his own, 25 of which are collected in this illustrated edition. From "The Lion and the Puppy," a poignant story about an improbable yet lasting friendship, to "Escape of the Dancing Bear," the parable of a performing bear who, though running free, reflexively dances at his master's command and is recaptured, these stories for all ages are based in Russian folklore and contain lessons both powerful and subtle.

"Like the best fables of Aesop, the morals naturally spring from the stories; they are not dogmatically imposed. The stories are warm, earthy, and filled with the wisdom of everyday life. Accompanying the stories are 13 ink and wash drawings ... illustrating the action."Booklist
