Pasha and Lisette live in the very little village of Miersk. Pasha's grandfather, Ivan, who has four eyebrows, is the town leader. Rumor abounds that the Blood Prince, a wolf who drinks men's blood, is closing in on the village. One day, Pasha, and Lisette, are sitting and talking by the river when the Firebird rises up out of the bushes on the other side. They forget to snatch a tail feather, which can bring untold riches. Everyone agrees that this is an omen, possibly about the Blood prince. Only Baba Yaga, a witch with iron teeth who lives in a house on chicken legs, can read the omen. Since everyone is afraid of Baba Yaga, Pasha and Lisette set out to find the old witch, and solve the mystery.
