The Firebird and Princess Vasilisa, a #fairytale #AtoZChallenge

“The Firebird and Princess Vasilisa” A crazy tale from Slavic folklore for you.😉 The king’s archer is on a hunt and runs across a firebird’s feather. But the archer’s horse warns the archer not to touch it, as bad things will happen if he does. (The horse can talk?!) The archer ignores the horse’s advice and takes it, bringing the feather back to the king so he will be praised and rewarded. When the king is presented with the feather, he demands the archer bring back the entire firebird or he will be executed. (See? Why didn’t he listen to that wise horse?)
