Publisher's Summary

Growing up, I loved Russian fairy-tales, but when I tried reading them to my son, in Arizona, he wasn't impressed. The stories felt foreign and dated to both of us. But I still loved the characters and the magic of these fairy-tales, so I decided to write a series aimed at American kids.

The first book is Firebird: Adventure One.

This is the second book, where ten-year-old Alex and his nine-year-old sister Katie have just returned from their first adventure into the land of Russian fairy-tales where they met Baba Yaga, the Russian witch, and got a magical feather from the Firebird.

Now, Alex wants to know what Aunt Karina's old book says about the real ending to the Firebird story.

"You and Katie created the real ending. The stories and legends are alive and always changing. And you can change their outcomes," Aunt Karina says.

Excited, Katie finds another story to change. A young man named Emelya is imprisoned by an evil tsar. Alex and Katie rush to the rescue. When they stop by a log cabin to ask for directions, a creature in a sheepskin's coat with green furry hands opens the door. His emerald eyes shine a bright green light right at Alex and Katie. Is he a friend or an enemy? Will Alex and Katie find Emelya? Will they return safely to Aunt Karina's house?

    Story
    "Wonderful narration of a fun story!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?



    The kids and I loved listening to this story. Alex and Katie's adventure is exciting, especially when they get to the palace and meet the evil tsar. The idea of using lollipops to make friends (share what you have, and others will like you) sends a nice message to the kids. The character of the strange forest creature is hilarious -- ugly on the outside but with a great soul. Rebecca Lea McCarthy's narration is amazing -- we felt like we there watching a play in a theater, not just listening to a story.

    Story
    "Lollipop"
    If you could sum up Lollipop in three words, what would they be?

    Last we saw Alex & Katie they were lost in an enchanted world. Now. they are back and onto their second adventure. This time around, they are off to save a young man, but they get a bit sidetracked and meet some colorful characters along the way.

    5 stars to a fairy tale where characters truly create the ending.

    Story
    "The evil tsar is not so evil after all"

    Another great story in the Alex and Katie series. I love the idea that the two kids can enter the magical world of Russian fairy-tales and change the endings of the fairy-tales by their efforts. Very empowering for the kids. I loved all the characters, but especially Leshi, the crazy forest creature. He reminds me of my goofy uncle, no offense to anyone. The narration is the best, with all the different voices!
