There is also famous saying by Maxim Gorky:  “You must write for children the same way you write for adults, only better.”  :)

A good choice of classical Russian writers above. I consider Nikolai Gogol’ as one of the greatest classical authors from Russia despite the fact Fedor Dostoevsky and Leo Tolstoy received widespread recognition.
Here is a list of children writers from Russia/USSR.

The quote from Gorky is wonderful and indeed true.

Speaking of Gogol, I saw that also frijnsje reads Gogol. Don't you guys find a difference of style between "The Dead Souls" and short novels inspired by folklore? Cause I had the feeling like I would read 2 different authors. I can't say that one way of writing would be better than the other, but I could just feel a big difference between his works.
