"In the shadow of King Vaslav s Palace was a marvellous garden, and in the middle of that garden stood a tree that grew apples of solid gold, each one as dazzling as the sun."
The firebird is stealing the tsar's famous golden apples. His two oldest sons fail to capture the bird, 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.
A powerful retelling of this classic folktale plumbs the heart of human fears, courage, and love."
