Pandora has been warned about the forbidden jar. Although she is surrounded with gifts and has rooms, gardens, and a courtyard to explore, Pandora is drawn to one room--the one that holds that jar. Is Pandora’s curiosity a curse?
In a seamless blend of prose and verse--and drawing from traditional mythological sources--Robert Burleigh dramatically tells Pandora's story for young readers. Complemented by Raul Colón's bold illustrations, Pandora is an unforgettable introduction to the classic myth.
ROBERT BURLEIGH is the author of many highly praised books for children, including Goal and Hoops. He lives in Chicago, Illinois.
RAUL COLÓN has illustrated more than fifteen books for children, including My Mama Had a Dancing Heart, a New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year. He lives in New City, New York.
