    A beautiful book...

    Although I have not started reading it yet (in either English OR Russian) I am looking forward to doing so. The products offered through Russian Life are always appealing and the customer service is top-notch. Thank you!

    Enjoyable to read. Easy layout with Russian on the left page and English on the right. Good for practicing general comprehension as it isn't a word by word translation so that the author could bring the essence of the story to life in English using poetic form.

Description

The Little Humpbacked Horse is a beloved Russian classic, written in the 1830s. It is the tale of a resourceful Russian peasant, Vanya, and his miracle-working horse, who together undergo various trials, exploits and adventures at the whim of a laughable tsar (indeed, this portrayal of the tsar got the book banned for 20 years in the nineteenth century). 

It is a tale of love and bravery, fantasy and humor, and it is all told in beautiful, rich, narrative poetry. Presented in our popular bilingual format (accented Russian on the left page, matching English on the right), with a stellar literary translation by Lydia Stone, this is a volume to cherish and share.
