Vasilisa & Intuition

Mom's Choice Gold Winner

Perfectly Awkward Tales is a series of girl-powered fairy tale adventures, where self-acceptance is the hero. All 3 books in the series have won a Mom's Choice Gold Award for excellence in family-friendly products.


  • Vasilisa is only ten years old, but must outsmart Baba Yaga, a powerful witch with iron teeth who likes to have children for supper. (Not as a guest, but as the main course!) With the help of her faithful doll, Inti, Vasilisa discovers the power of her gift. Intuition.

  • Vasilisa is famous in her own country of Russia,but few outside her country know of her amazing feats. There are very different versions of Vasilisa’s tale that have been told over time, with some versions predating Greek culture (323 B.C.).

    In Vasilisa & Intuition, Inti represents intuition, an inner knowing we all have that guides us.

    You have probably felt it before—a gentle nudge that leads you in the right direction, away from danger or toward a true friend. Or knowing when someone is lying or telling the truth. There are many ways we use intuition every day.

    Scientists, athletes, entrepreneurs, writers and artists of all kinds use intuition to discover new ways of doing things.

    Intuition is a strength we often forget we have. Learning to trust your inner knowing takes practice. Creativity is a great way to get in touch with your intuition. Try keeping a journal. Write down your thoughts, feelings, poems, drawings, or anything that comes to you. There are no mistakes. Express yourself any way you want. Have fun and let it flow.
