Pulling… turnip(s)

I recently learned that another Russian fairy tale which I’ve translated for e-publisher Terrylab awhile back has made its way onto iTunes as an interactive bilingual storybook!

Turnip Giant (Репка) is a classic folk tale about the value of teamwork in getting sh*t done. Check it out (along with the two other fun app-books) and tell me what you think.

Coincidentally I’ve just come across this cartoon which upgrades the narrative for the Millennial audience(s) and I can certainly relate… 🙂

Now, if anyone has any Russian-English / English-Russian translation projects in mind – let me know! I love the ambassadorial role of “literary interpretation” 😉
