This isn't a particularly good cross section of stories. There are only seven but the same plots and elements repeat. I understand that the character of folklore merges stories and grafts stolen elements...but you shouldn't have such close cousins in such a short collection.

I mean, there were something like eight Baba Yagas. ( )
