|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.
