    Pretty accurate retelling of the Hades Persephone myth that follows the sources faithfully even though I believe the narration could've been better The artwork compensates for that though it's in watercolour style and the artist does make an effort to give his illustrations an Hellenistic imagery Plus either it's just me or Hades is rather a tad sexy in this interpretation

    Among the HadesPersephone books I've seen out there for kids this is one of the better ones It's complete it has the the part of the myth with Demeter and Metaenira unlike so many other books and I really enjoy the watercolor illustration I've seen this artist in several other books I read when I was little and always liked Richardson's work It's a old book but it's still a great one and worthy for any mythologybook collection

    Beautiful illustrations accompany this classic Greek myth I loved this storybook as a child and I’m so happy to have saved it to pass on to my own children

    This is a Greek myth that explains the cause of the seasons The story tells about the day Eros and Aphrodite shot an arrow at Hades lord or the underworld that caused him to fall in love with Persephone daughter of Demeter Hades knows that Demeter will not let Persephone be his bride in the underworld so he tricks Persephone by planting a mysterious flower by her home When she gets close enough to look at it he kidnaps her and takes her to the underworld Demeter Goddess of the harvest is in so much grief she refuses to bless the crops so everything on earth begins to die and people begin starving Zeus realizes that if everyone on Earth dies there will be no one left to worship them so he orders Hades to send back Persephone However before he sends her back Hades makes Persephone eat a pomegranate She returns to Earth but when Demeter finds out she has eaten the pomegranateshe knows that her daughter will have to return to the underworld because she has eaten the fruit of the dead Zeus decides that she ate the fruit against her will she must only return during parts of the year When she is home during spring and summer Persephone's mother Demeter grants her blessing on earth and plants grow and are plentiful However during fall and winter when Persephone must return during to the underworld she does not give her blessing and everything begins to shrivel up and hibernate I did not like the way that this story was written It was very boring and hard to follow sometimes especially for people who may not be familiar with Greek mythology As a teacher I do not see much value in this book because to me this is the type of book I hated to read as a child I would not use this in my classroom
