Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sarah Maury Swan
The latest installment of the "Myth-O-Mania" series as told by Lord Hades is about Cupid and his wooing of Psyche, a mere mortal. Cupid's got braces on his teeth and zits on his face and a penchant for shooting his arrows at the wrong people so they will fall in love with inappropriate mates. Then he meets Psyche who's being held prisoner at Zeus' summer temple by Cupid's mother, Aphrodite. Aphrodite doesn't like competition in the beauty department. But she turns out not to be a match for her determined son and the even more resolute Psyche. The beauty eventually gets promoted to goddess status so she and Cupid can marry. Cupid discovers he is no longer a dorky teenager. An amusing way to introduce kids to Greek mythical characters; even boys will like this story. The writing is lively and the story also includes information about the lives of Hades, his wife Persephone, Zeus and other gods. Zephyr, the West Wind, has a prominent role in the story, which she carries out with much whining and kvetching. This book is a useful tool in getting young readers to relate to old myths.
