In finding Baba Yaga, Natasha finds her voice, her power, herself....

Praise for this book

"This novel-in-verse is a journey, an escape, and an encounter with an ambiguous evil. Tart and touching and sometimes deeply sad, with surprising stings of wit." - John Crowley

"This is a Worm Ouroboros of a story, the old made new, the new made old, metaphors rubbing shoulders with painful truths. A book-length poem, Finding Baba Yaga is no gimmick but rather the only way the story could be told to deliver the impact that it does." - Charles de Lint

"Jane Yolen is a phenomenon: a poet and a mythmaker, who understands how old stories can tell us new things. We are lucky to have her." - Neil Gaiman

"Seductive in the best way possible, Finding Baba Yaga draws you in from first word to last, its secrets doled out like sweet treats.... If you've never met Baba Yaga before, it's time. If you think you have, be assured: not like this." - Nikki Grimes
