Description Grandma Chickenlegs PDF
Grades. In this Russian twist on the Cinderella tale, Geraldine McCaughrean weaves a new tale of brave Tatia. Her kindness to animals gives her the help she needs later to get away from the witch and return to her father.

Dispatched on an errand to dreaded Grandma Chickenlegs's house by her cruel stepmother ("a woman with eyes as sharp as needles and a soul as thin as a thread"), young Tatia escapes the witch three times, due to magic help and the advice of her beloved.
