Overview

Time for Flowers, Time for Snow: A retelling of the legend of Demeter and Persephone by Glen Huser, Phillippe Béha

The Greek goddess of harvest Demeter loves her daughter Persephone more than life itself. So after Persephone is kidnapped by Hades, ruler of the underworld, and taken as his bride, Demeter's sorrow covers the earth in winter snow. The crops fail, and Zeus sends his messenger Hermes to bring about Persephone's release. But things get complicated when Persephone takes a liking to her captor. The book includes a CD of the lyrics performed as an opera choral by school children of Montreal. The Monty Python Terry Jones narrates the text on the CD.

"Time for Flowers Time for Snow" is a gorgeous book visually and a treat to read. After savouring this story, you will have the answer to the ageless question: "have you ever wondered why the seasons come and go?". The CD is a refreshing addition to the story. The songs are performed with so much life and the storytelling is alluring. I think this book is an excellent addition to our home library.
