    Description"In the shadow of King Vaslav's Palace was a marvelous garden, and in the middle of that garden stood a tree that grew apples of solid gold, each one as dazzling as the sun." Someone is stealing the king's famous golden apples, and the culprit must be found. The palace gardener spots the luminous Firebird snatching the apples in the night. The king's two oldest sons are sent to capture it but fail. So Ivan, the youngest son, must go on the dangerous quest, befriending a gray wolf, winning both the Firebird and the heart of the beautiful Princess Helen. Saviour Pirotta's powerful retelling of this classic folktale plumbs the heart of human fears, courage, and love.
