The Golden Mare, the Firebird, and the Magic Ring by Ruth Sanderson

A retelling of a classic fairy tale, if less known nowadays, with a few tweaks.  Alexi acquires a magical golden horse who gives him good advice, but the tsar resents the only Alexi can ride her.  When Alexi finds a firebird's feather and gives the tsar it, the tsar starts with demanding the firebird itself.

Gloriously illustrated.
