THIS WEEK I’M WAITING FOR;
THE HOUSE WITH CHICKEN LEGS
Twelve-year-old Marinka dreams of a normal life, where her house stays in one place long enough for her to make friends. But her house has chicken legs and moves on without warning. The only people Marinka meets are dead, and they disappear when her grandmother, Baba Yaga, guides them through The Gate. Marinka wants to change her destiny, but her house has other ideas…
SO, this is kind of cool but I haven’t read a middle grade book since I read the Percy Jackson series! I’m normally not interested in them and just end up passing them by, but this story is centered around a folk tale that I LOVE ( I’m sure theres no surprises that it’s a Russian folk tale I love ) BABA YAGA! So because of the premise that interweaves Russian folktales into a modern day setting, I really think I want to pick this up.
until next time,
