From the Publisher:
Beautiful illustrations enhance these tales of love, loss, and pride presented in this wonderful collection of Greek myths, featuring Pandora, Orpheus, Persephone, Psyche, and others, for middle readers.
Newbery Medal-winner Cynthia Rylant retells her favorite stories from Greek mythology, breathing fresh life into the tales of Pandora, Persephone, Orpheus, Pygmalion, Narcissus, and Psyche. The writing is lyrical and understated, a perfect tone for stories that introduce young readers to themes of love and loss, pride and forgiveness. Carson Ellis's elegant black-and-white illustrations lend an aura of beauty and mystery.
Multifaceted author Cynthia Rylant is the creator of picture books, poetry, short stories, and novels. Raised primarily in West Virginia by both her mother and her maternal grandparents, Rylant had a rustic but happy childhood. Her first book, WHEN I WAS YOUNG IN THE MOUNTAINS, is a reflection of her childhood and was named a Caldecott Honor Book. Her 1985 work, THE RELATIVES CAME, also received that honor. In addition to these picture books, Rylant is well known for her easy-reader series that focuses on the adventures of a boy named Henry and his lovable dog, Mudge. Her young adult novel A FINE WHITE DUST was named a Newbery Honor Book in 1987.
