The collection includes both well-known and little-known Ukrainian folk tales – about animals, magical and everyday ones. Fairy tales are distinguished by a variety of plots, vivid images, and expressive speech. Any of them is interesting to read, whether it is a magical story or close to real life. The real adornment of the collection are the drawings of the most talented graphic artist Yevgeny Rachev, for the first time coming out with Ukrainian fairy tales in such a complete form. The drawings were created in the so-called early period of the artist’s work, they were last published in 1955.
