Just in time for Halloween! From New York Times bestselling author Melanie Karsak comes a spooky retelling of the fairy tale Vasilia the Fair.
Vasilisa's father is dying. When her stepmother sends her to a witch for a cure, Vasilisa knows she must be brave. Rumors abound that the witch eats children, but Vasilisa would do anything to save the father she loves. Even if it means risking her own life.
From the fairy tale world of Melanie Karsak comes a new short story to delight the senses this spooky season.
This is definitely a perfect fit for October. I am not familiar with the fairy tale of Vasilia the Fair. This reminded me of Cinderella with a wise witch rather than a fairy godmother. It is nicely written and would work well for young people and adults. At 12 pages it read very quickly, and it made me smile. I recommend this to readers who enjoy fairy tale retellings.
