SaltHyperion, 1992
Retold by Jane Langton

From a small Russian village, three brothers are sent into the world by their father to find their fortunes.

Newberry Honor winner Jane Langton’s prose is rich in the cadences of traditional Russian storytelling, and Caldecott Honor winner Ilse Plume’s jewellike paintings re-create the classic symbols of the Russian heritage in exquisite detail.
