Narrator Beata Pozniak establishes a youthful voice for Zima, a gray wolf pup who trades her body with that of the forest witch, Baba Yaga, in exchange for a spell to save her younger brother. She wants nothing more than to be a wolf again, but in the meantime she learns to live as Baba Yaga, helping a young girl, Nadya, who reaches out to her. Pozniak creates unique voices for each of the characters, including a raspy, desperate voice for Baba Yaga that brings her to life. Listeners will be intrigued by this fantasy, which draws on classic folklore characters, such as wolves and witches, and goes beneath the surface to reveal their true intentions.
