    1. Kris Waldherr is an award winning author and illustrator whose books for adults and children include Bad Princess, Doomed Queens, and The Book of Goddesses The New Yorker praised Doomed Queens as utterly satisfying and deliciously perverse The Book of Goddesses was a One Spirit Book of the Month Club s Top Ten Most Popular Book Her picture book Persephone and the Pomegranate was noted by the New York Times Book Review for its quality of myth and magic Waldherr is also the creator of the Goddess Tarot, which has a quarter of a million copies in print Her debut novel The Lost History of Dreams will be published by Touchstone Books in early 2019.

    2. A beautifully illustrated retelling of this classic tale. I like that Persephone has her own agency in deciding to stay in the Underworld for half of each year.

    3. Title: Persephone and the PomegranateAuthor: Kris WaldherrIllustrator: Kris WaldherrGenre: MythTheme(s): Mythology, Ancient Greece, Mothers & Daughters, Seasons—Winter & SpringOpening line/sentence: “A long time ago, when gods and goddesses still lived among humans, Demeter, goddess of the harvest, had a daughter names Persephone whom she treasured more than the earth.”Brief Book Summary: In this Greek myth, mother Demeter and daughter Persephone are separated and Demeter will do a [...]

    4. There are a couple of elements missing from the retelling of this myth, but the illustrations are beautiful and breathtaking, filled with color and boldness. I also like the fact that Persephone came up with an solution, instead of having Zeus step in and decide her fate. Overall a great book for a Greek myth or H and P collection.

    5. I love the myth of Persephone. I think the symbolism is great. My only complaint with this book is that the author mixes the Greek and Roman names. I know it is a tedious complaint but I prefer consistency.

    6. A version of the classic Abduction myth with a large part of it focused on Demeter's search for her daughter. This isn't my favorite version of this myth but it is beautifully illustrated. A good bedtime story and/or tool for teaching young children about the Greek and Roman myths.

    7. Beautiful artwork, but just an okay retelling of the myth of Persephone explaining how the season of winter came to be. I must admit, it annoys me a little that the author used the Greek names for all of the gods and goddesses except for Hades, instead he used the Roman name of Pluto.

    8. Um, no, it was not Persephone's decision that she would spend part of her year with Hades after it was discovered that she ate the pomegranate seeds. If I'm not mistaken, it was Zeus's decision.

    9. What a perfect book! The story of Demeter and Persephone is told beautifully. It's a great way to introduce Greek Mythology to young people. The illustrations are lovely.

    10. This book is gorgeous. The attention to detail on the artwork and the story capture the myth perfectly. Check out more on the upcoming review.Http://onthebroomstick/

    11. Not a bad, simple telling of this myth. The oil paintings are absolutely beautiful and reflect the awesomeness of Greek mythology.
