Pros: delicate, natural colors, cute simple characters which can be found in majority of toy boxes, making role play easy (my toddler is a tad too young to appreciate the stick puppets, which is not a bad idea, too). My husband, who does not speak Russian, was able to 'read' it by just describing pictures, and he got it pretty close to the original. Just by looking at the pictures, my 2.4 year old can tell that the fox is sad, that her stuff is broken, that animals brought her replacement or 'fixed' stuff, and that they are happy and sharing, and the fox says 'thank you'. The fonts are good, and the fact that first letter of every page in highlighted prompts my child to spontaneously name these letters - thanks to this book I found out my toddler knows letters I did not realize she remembered.
Cons: The text. The idea is has some potential, but the beginning is prejudiced against introverts, assuming that animals with social avoidance as unwilling to share, and not, say, easily overwhelmed or shy. OK, this is the writer's right to make her story the way she sees fit, but then comes Russian language and formal logic with their own rules. The text needs another round of proofreading - there are orthographic and grammatical errors. There is disproportionate number of diminutives. I appreciate (no irony - I seriously do) the fact that the author used complex sentences with participle clauses, but they should be polished up more. They sound unnatural, как анекдот про пожар в доме-музее Пришвина.
As I am writing this review, I read this book at least 50 times. It grew on me. I feel for fox, kudos to bear, and especially - to squirrel and bird, showing up with goodies at natural predator's doorsteps. But there are logical gaps that I cannot fill. Fox cannot fall asleep whole night - but then she wakes up in the morning. The house was destroyed, and Iriska sits on a tree stomp, weeping her losses. Oh wait - the house is there, because the hedgehog calls the doorbell and the fox opens from inside. But when the squirrel arrives, she does knocks - what happened to the doorbell?
This book has a great potential, if they decide to hire a new editor and try again.
