I own a depressed doll. She's with me for 32 years now, and I still hope she will smile someday. I never had the heart to leave her behind me. She looks so sad and I like her so much I just couldn't.
Plus, I know the story of Vassilissa the Beautiful.
I used to read it with Ivan Bilibine illustrations. I love this illustrator dearly.
Baba-Yaga the witch frightened me so much that I put the book between my matress and the bed, to be sure that she won't be able to pop out of the book at night.
Maybe that's the reason why I kept the habit to keep my feet IN the bed when I sleep.
You never know.
