Little did Persephone know that by wandering away from her friends to pick flowers, the course of her life would be changed forever when she was kidnapped by Hades, King of the Underworld. When Mother Demeter, Goddess of Earth, could not find her daughter, in her sorrow she made the earth frozen and unable to bear flowers or food. Even with Zeus stepping in to try and convince Hades to release Persephone, Hades has a few tricks of his own. Read to learn if the Goddess of Earth will ever be reunited with her daughter. The illustrations are completed in mixed media and information about Ancient Greece and how this story came about is included in the back of this book.

Persephone was my favorite book because it talks about the god Hades, which is to me the most interesting god.
