The Firebird by Saviour Pirotta

The Firebird by Saviour Pirotta  1

The Firebird is stealing the tsar’s famous golden apples. His two oldest sons fail to capture the dazzling thief, so their younger brother, Ivan, must set out on a quest to find it. Befriended by the wise grey wolf, Ivan wins the firebird and the hand of the beautiful Princess Helen.


“This is a spellbinding retelling of the classic Russian folktale that inspired Stravinsky’s famous ballet: a glorious quest for something so bright, it illuminates the human heart.”
