This is the 2nd edition of The Mystic Princesses and the Whirlpool with a new cover and illustrations and it was well worth the wait. My slugs have particularly commended the cover and asked why I don't have covers as pretty. I ignored them. Even though the beautiful cover gives a good impression of the kind of content inside - beautiful writing - it would seem to be more aimed at girls than boys. However, I'm male and most of my slugs are male - probably- and we enjoyed it so perhaps the male members of your household will like it too? And why not? This book is full of Greek mythology, specifically in relation to Ares (which is sure to get kids interested in the Greek mythologies) as the young princesses attempt to protect our protagonist Harmonie from her father and her siblings. Full of adventure and a lovely narrative, this is a promising first book and with the 2nd to take place in Hawaii, lots more great adventures and storytelling are sure to be told.
