From the Publisher"Foley retells one of the most famous love stories of all time, and it is certainly beautiful to behold. Banerjee’s lovely, jewel-toned paintings will keep readers’ eyes glued to the page as they follow the suspenseful twists and turns of this classic tale. This adaptation begins and ends with the framing device of a teacher telling the story to her lovelorn student. This is a good narrative choice for sharing this story with young readers–they “hear” the teacher explain the story and respond to her student’s questions and exclamations along the way. The story of Eros and Psyche has more ups and downs than a roller coaster, as love, jealousy, and trust are all stretched to their breaking points. Ultimately (*spoiler alert*) true love prevails, even though it is challenged by family obligations and by death itself. This is a good adaptation of an old story, and one that will entice today’s readers." — School Library Journal
"I highly recommend Campfire’s comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature."
— Chris Wilson, The Graphic Classroom (a resource for teachers and librarians)
"An interesting take on the story of Eros and Psyche and amazing artwork make this adaptation of the classical myth a very successful one."

"If you are looking for a way to introduce a youngster to the magical world of mythology, this Campfire version of Eros and Psyche is a good place to start. It is a story that has everything: romance, jealousy, adventure, and mystery. It is a story with lessons to learn, morals to be drawn. But most important of all, it is a story told with flair and illustrated with style."
— Jack Goodstein, Blogcritics
"The classic story is ever-captivating, and the Campfire graphic novel is a great introduction to one of the less well-known Greek myths."
