Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanna Sciarrotta
Pandora and her friends continue on their journey to capture all of the evils that she mistakenly let out of the infamous box. In this adventure, Lust is their goal, and Pandora must follow it back in time 1300 years! Hermes the messenger god decides to help, but they must remember: they cannot change anything! Pandy, Alcie, Iole, and Homer discover Lust at the wedding of Thetis and Peleus, but nothing is ever as easy as they think it will be. It turns out that Lust is actually in the mythical golden apple that Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite fight over. This quest proves itself to be the most dangerous and heartfelt one yet. No one is safe, and the act of trapping Lust back in the box just might take the life of someone they all love. Caroline Hennesy continues to craftily weave classical Greek mythology into her Pandora series. Readers with a background in mythology and those with a minimal knowledge base will love the result. It is delightful to read about Pandora's adventures as she travels through well-known stories, yet has a story all her own within each one. These books are wonderfully light companion books to mythology studies in school, and they are just as good to readers looking for an interesting series to enjoy. Reviewer: Jeanna Sciarrotta

Gr 4–7—With the help of Hermes, Pandy and her friends travel back in time 1300 years to Mount Pelion in search of Lust at the wedding of mortal King Peleus to the goddess Thetis. Upset that she was not invited, Eris, the Goddess of Discord, places Lust in a golden apple with "To the fairest" engraved on it and hurls it into the ceremony. Lust for the apple falls upon Aphrodite, Athena, and Hera. Pandy and her friends go through many ordeals in order to retrieve it, including Paris's judging of who is the fairest, being maimed or blinded, Hera's meddling, and going back to the near present to retrieve the golden apple from a new temple for Aphrodite. Hennesy brings a light, convivial tone to the dialogue and plot that—while adding a modern spin—at times seems awkward and distracts from the story. Pandora Gets Heart is a suitable addition for those who have purchased other books in the series; others might consider passing on it.—Adrienne L. Strock, Maricopa County Library District, AZ
