Persephone

Persephone

by Sally Pomme Clayton

On a warm spring day, the beautiful young goddess Persephone is snatched from her home by Hades, god of the Underworld, and taken away to live underground and become his bride. Persephone’s mother, Demeter, goddess of Earth, is so brokenhearted that she curses the land so nothing can grow — a permanent winter. How will Persephone and her mother be reunited? Will spring ever come again? This lyrical retelling of the ancient Greek myth by master storyteller Sally Pomme Clayton is brought to life with Virginia Lee’s beautiful illustrations. Young readers will be intrigued by the dramatic story as well as by its clever explanation for the changing seasons.
