When I was a kid, I always wanted to play the witch. When I was in college, I played the Babba Yagga in a production called Child of Courage. This story is a combination of Vassalissa the Beautiful from Jane Yolen’s Folktales from Around the World and Bony Legs by Joanna Cole, and other Babba Yagga stories I have encountered. Babba Yagga is my favorite witch and I’m happy to share her with you!
This story is featured on Donna’s story collection, ‘A Little Shiver’. It is a collection of not so scary stories for those times when you want to be scared, but just a little bit. It is family friendly and great for kids in middle school and older.
