When a great white oak gifts an old man a branch imbued with magic, he carves five wooden matryoshka dolls, each smaller than the last. The wooden dolls take on a life of their own as they frolic from one season to the next, bringing the old man and his wife a joy they had always longed for. Beautiful verse and stunning, traditional illustrations full of woodland creatures and playfully painted matryoshka dolls explore a tale of heartache, hope, and love.
