The Little Clay Hut

In this post, we will see the book The Little Clay Hut – Russian Folk Tales.

About the book

Collected in this book are Russian folk tales about animals. They are quaint and intriguing, and though meant for the tiny tots, will endear themselves to all. The birds and animals in them speak like human beings and they think and act like human beings. Some of them are good and others bad, some are brave and others cowardly, some are foolish and others clever.

Different sections of the book were translated from Russian by  Irina Zheleznova, George Hanna, and Bernard Isaacs. The Telugu translation is attributed to RVR. The splendid drawings of Yevgeny Rachev whose brush takes us into a world of magic are a joy in themselves. The book was published  by Raduga Publishers in 1987 reprint, the Telugu version is from 1982.

Do let us know if there are any other translations that you are aware of.
