About this title

Synopsis:

Psyche is the most beautiful woman in the world, yet the oracle at Delphi foresees she will fall in love with a creature feared even by the gods themselves.

Magically, Psyche finds herself in a magnificent castle fitted with sweet music, attentive servants, and a charming but invisible host. Soon she falls in love with this man she has never seen, but in a moment of doubt she betrays his trust. To win back his love, Psyche must show that she is as brave as she is beautiful by performing three impossible tasks.

Perhaps the greatest love story of all, Cupid and Psyche is unsurpassed in its richness and drama. Marie Craft's lively, suspenseful retelling of this classic Greek myth will appeal to young and old alike. And these legendary lovers have inspired forty lush luminous paintings by award-winning artist Kinuko Craft.

Lavishly illustrated and thrillingly told, here is a book to be treasured forever.

Review:

First-time author Marie Charlotte Craft and her mother, award-winning illustrator Kinuko Craft combine detailed oil-over-watercolor paintings and easy-to-read text to introduce the story of the arrow-shooting Cupid, god of love, and the beautiful Princess Psyche to younger readers. Though the story is about their union, the book unfolds as a fairy tale, skirting over the details of love so that it's appropriate for even the smallest children. Cupid's nocturnal visits are for conversation only and the two don't marry or have their child until the last sentence.
