The Tale of Tsar Saltan

The Tale of Tsar Saltan by Alexander Pushkin, illustrated by Gennady Spirin

A classic fairy tale of a tsar who marries a young woman after overhearing what she and her sisters would do if they married him.  And the resulting jealousy of her sisters, for a tale involving a swan, a barrel, a hawk, a gnat, and more. 

Good illustrations.
