Deborah Nourse Lattimore has traveled all over the world as a scholar, an artist, and a writer. She loves creating picture books that take young readers on amazing journeys back through time to ancient and mysterious cultures. In Medusa, Ms. Lattimore transports readers to the mythological Greece of long ago, when gods meddled with mortals and fates would often be cursed. When not roaming the world, Ms. Lattimore lives in Los Angeles, CA, with her two children.From School Library Journal:
Grade 3-6?Lattimore retells the traditional "Aladdin," the unusual "Queen of the Serpents," and the adventurous "Ubar, the Lost City of Brass." The paintings, done in dark, rich colors, are elaborate and detailed with folk motifs commonly found in Arabic fabrics, but on occasion the details are so overwhelming that the picture lacks focus. Lattimore is adept at depicting expression and is particularly successful with the Queen of the Serpents. A criticism of the book as a whole is the exclusion of the Scheherezade frame. Children will not have a context for the tales and their place in the thousand and one nights. For younger readers, perhaps these stories will lead them to a more in-depth collection. Share these tales as a read-aloud or offer them for an independent journey.?Cheri Estes, Detroit Country Day School Middle School, Beverly Hills, MI
