Fairy Tale Tuesday - The Tale of Tsar Saltan

Fairy Tale Tuesday:
I have a book illustrated by Ivan Bilbin, but I have no idea what it's about because it's in Russian. The images have beautiful linework with such subtle color. It feels like a fairy tale or a folktale. I asked a friend who reads Cyrillic , and she said this is The Tale of Tsar Saltan by Alexander Pushkin.
