Created for Tsar Nicholas's children in 1918, when they were held captive in Siberia, Botkin's poignant tales are by turns allegorical and political. Smuggled out of the Soviet Union in 1919, the beautifully illustrated tales are being published here for the first time. Foreword by acclaimed Romanov biographer Robert K. Massie. 50 color illustrations. Photos. Radio sponsorship.
