    Oh, how I love this book. There's enough to love in the typewritten notecards, intentional typos and poetic language – but underneath that there's genuine wisdom. I learned a lot from Baba Yaga, and her advice continues to resonate in my daily life. This is one of my favourite books of the y...

    This was a book with great potential but poor development.I was expecting something quite different from this. It was an effort to finish it, I clawed my way through this book and I'm quite sure Baba Yaga's advice won't stay in my mind long after I finish this review. The format is like a compilatio...

    This strangely wonderful book defies genre and category. It's art: a charmingly illustrated book of highly original poetry. Anyone coming to it in search of easily digested, real world advice is going to miss the point completely. Taisia Kitaiskaia ndoesn't simply conjure Baba Yaga, she infuses the ...

    1. Not a graphic novel. Whoever shelved it as such: you suck.2. There's a reason advice columnists only answer a question or two per post, and that reason is any more than that is BORING.The wacky combination of modern slang used by the advice seekers and the archaic language Baba Yaga uses in her r...
