Bony-Legs is based on an old Russian folktale about a witch named Baba Yaga — aka Bony-Legs — who just loves to eat children. When a kindhearted little girl is captured by old Bony-Legs, the animals that she helped along her way repay the favor and help her escape. The book was banned due to its depictions of witchcraft and magic, apparently evil forces that children must not hear about. Scary? No doubt. But is this book any "worse" than the numerous other kids' books that feature plenty of magic, and even a witch or two? You decide!
