Excerpt from The Giant Witch Baby With Iron Teeth:
When she found Ivan missing, the witch baby swelled up in fury, growing bigger and bigger and bigger until what was left of the palace fell to pieces. Then she took off and chased after Ivan.
The stallion galloped and galloped, but when Ivan looked back, there was the giant witch baby running after him with long strides, going faster than his horse. They came to a lake, and the black horse leapt to the far shore. There, Ivan threw down the magic handkerchief.
All at once, the lake grew as wide and as deep as an ocean, so the giant witch baby had to swim, and swimming takes longer than running. She gnashed her iron teeth! “You shan’t get away from me!”
