With a strange, otherworldly style, poetic clarity, and striking honesty, Ask Baba Yaga contains beautifully skewed wisdom to be consulted in times of need.

Dear Baba Yaga,

I think I must crave male attention too much. I fear that, without it, I would feel invisible.



When you seek others this way, you are invisible nonetheless. Yr shawl is covered in mirrors in which others admire themselves; this is why they greet you so passionately. It is good to be seen, but it is better to see. Find a being to look hard into, & you will see yrself and what is more than you.


In age-old Slavic fairy tales, the witch Baba Yaga is sought out by those with a burning need for guidance. In contemporary life, Baba Yaga—a dangerous, slippery oracle—answered earnest questions on The Hairpin for years. These pages collect her most poignant, surreal, and humorous exchanges along with all-new questions and answers for those seeking her mystical advice.

About the Narrator

Zura Johnson, is thrilled to bring these ridiculous stories to life. She fell in love with Rootabaga Stories at a young age. Her mother, an elementary school teacher and reading specialist for thirty years, used to read these stories to Zura and her brothers. The absurdity and silliness, and the acrobatic language deeply appealed to her. Zura is a classically trained stage actor. She has performed in stages from her childhood home in California to the East coast, and the way to Singapore. She has now worked in theater and as a voice actor for more than twenty years. She holds an MFA from the Old Globe Theatre and the University of San Diego.
