Meet Koshka, the extraordinary storytelling cat, as she spins a series of dazzling tales for a royal audience – accounts of the enchanting Snowmaiden, Sadko the minstrel and the Princess of the Sea, Prince Ivan, the Grey Wolf and the Firebird, and Baba-Yaga, the witch who lives in a hut with chicken legs.
Graffeg is delighted to be republishing Koshka’s Tales, a wonderfully imaginative adaptation of five timeless stories from Russian folklore, written and illustrated by James Mayhew. Featuring unforgettable tales of handsome princes, wizards and princesses, golden apples and magical realms, the collection was first published in 1993 by Kingfisher Books and has been out of print for over 20 years.
Koshka’s Tales was described by Geraldine McCaughrean in The Times as ‘a marvellous book, its language as glossy and gratifying as its artwork… weaves real Eastern enchantment.’
Publisher’s Weekly said: ‘A vibrant and accessible collection of five Russian folktales… with illustrations that sparkle like a Fabergé egg.’
