The House with Chicken Legs

I was aware of the character of Baba Yaga but not to the extent that Sophie Anderson has fleshed this character out to and introduced her granddaughter Marinka. After a couple of starts the story carried me off and Marinka's struggle just to be an ordinary person and not a Guardian to the Gate for the dead was very real. I loved the story and its characters and settings. I have also decided I would definitely live in a house with chicken legs for the unexpected destinations and the idea that a house could give you a hug!
