The Fool of the World and the Flying Ship

By Arthur Ransome, Uri Shulevitz

Line drawings and watercolors in bright, glowing, jewel-toned colors show the magnificent flying ship and the landscapes and onion domes of Russia. In this old Russian tale, the scorned and foolish younger son of peasants overcomes tremendous obstacles and wins the hand of the czar's daughter.
