Description from the packaging.

Baba Yaga and the Magic Geese
A Russian Folk Tale

Based on a centuries-old Russian folk tale, Baba Yaga and the Magic Geese is the story of Tasha, a headstrong young girl who embarks on an exciting adventure into an enchanted forest and, along the way, learns the importance of accepting responsibility and keeping promises.

When asked by her parents to watch over her little brother Niki, Tasha is far too busy playing with her doll to pay close attention. Suddenly, three magic geese swoop down, pluck Niki from Tasha's care, and take him to the home of the dreaded witch, Baba Yaga. Tasha dashes off to rescue her brother and encounters several exciting adventures along the way. Follow Tasha as she meets a stream of magic milk, a tree of magic apples, an oven of magic bread, and an entire cast of unforgettable characters.
