Baga Yaga

Some magical creatures are friendly, others are quite scary indeed. I remember reading about Baba Yaga when I was little and her house with chicken feet was really frightening. These pictures are by the incredibly talented Carolyn Le. She has the best eye for color, don't you think? Just magical!

Check out more of her beautiful illustrations here: http://tinyurl.com/2v2m9n7What kinds of things did you think were scary when you were a kid? I loved reading fairy tales and stories that were just a little bit creepy. How about you?

  1. I don't know how I stumbled on to your site; but, I am so happy I did! I have a sixteen year old daughter and a four year old son who is autistic. I am always looking for fun things on the internet to do with him. Thanks for sharing your talent and wonderful "freebies". God bless you!
