The stories in Russian Magic Tales from Pushkin to Platonov vividly describe the long searches and wrestles that young women go through. Especially in circumstances where wicked stepmothers turn young children into tsars and geese and ask dangerous riddles. This involves the help and hindrance from the cannibal witches, stolen wives, talking skulls, magical dolls, and brothers who come in the disguise as birds with wisdom.
