Master storyteller and writer, Margaret Bateson-Hill has written a new story about Masha – a little girl who loves to paint. The Firebird asks Masha to help hide her eggs from the witch, Baba Yaga. Masha paints them to match the four elements – earth, water, air and fire –but has to do even more when Baba Yaga gets her hands on the last one… Templates and instructions are provided at the back to inspire children to try for themselves. Features the full story in Russian Cyrillic script alongside the English.
