In this post, we will see a book having two children’s stories The Town In The Snuffbox and Old Father Frost by Vladimir Odoyevsky.
A contemporary of Pushkin and Gogol, the well-known Russian Prince Vladimir Odoyeusky (1804-1869) is the author of many works, including some extremely popular tales for children. Here are two of them, the delightful title story about Misha’s adventures with a musical snuff-box, and “Old Father Frost”, also highly entertaining and instructive.
The book is lavishly illustrated. The illustrations in the first story perhaps reminds one of Tim Burton’s imagery in his movies.
