This magical tale threads together three traditional Russian fairy tales and weaves them into one bewitching and fantastical story. Rich in design and storytelling, Firebird follows the journey of Ivan, the Tsar Saltan's son, who tries to capture the magical Firebird that is stealing golden apples from his father's orchard. After confronting his lying jealous sister, Ivan searches far and wide and across many lands and times for the mystical bird. On his journey he encounters a friendly wolf, a beautiful princess with a wooden heart, a house on chicken legs, and the infamous and terrifying witch Baba Yaga with her pet raven.
