**Summary
Persephone (pg. 19-27)

Everyones knows Zeus; the ruler over the heavens & earth. Zeus had two brothers Poseidon (ruler of the seas & oceans) and Hades (ruler of the Underworld & death) along with one sister, Demeter (ruler of crops and harvest).
This myth tells us the story of Persephone, daughter of Demeter. She loved Persephone very dearly.
Hades kidnapped Persephone and took her to the underworld. Hades forced Persephone into becoming the Queen of the Underworld.
As Persephone was missing, Demeter was worried for her safety. Demeter looked for her daughter for nine days and nights without rest, food, or drink. In doing so, she abanded the crops on earth, which made the people starve. She blamed them for her missing daughter.
Her daughter escaped from the underworld due to the help of Hermes. Demeter was again happy and the crops began to grow once again. Since Persephone ate three pomegranate seeds, as an agreement, she would have to rule with Hades for 1/3 if the year. The other 2/3 of the year, Persephone would be with her mother. This was something not even Zeus could change because of the rule the Fates made a while back.
The 1/3 of the months that Persephone would be gone, crops did not grow. When she returned, so would spring. This Greek Mythology tale tells the reasons why we have winter and spring.

**Comparing:
This retelling of this Greek myth, by Ann Turnbull, is no different than the rest. The entire myth stayed the exact same and no finer details differ. This is just a retelling of the Persephone's story, not a different version. ( )

Wonderful illustrations. A good book to read along with children, and to teach in a classroom about Greek mythology.

Its a collection of the ancient Greek Myths. Dis adaptations can be accurate, they seem well described. The graphics and the art work is amazing. The art is done in high quality, which can make this book different than other myth books. ( )

Greek Myths by author Ann Turnbull and illustrator Sarah Young: story- Monsters And Heroes-- Ariadne on Naxos(page 63-70)
This story is a continuation of the myth, 'The Minotaur', picking up right after Theseus slays the Minotaur and abandons Ariadne on the island Naxos. The story switches perspectives and with it, the tone from heroism to heartbroken. Ariadne feels her abandonment flooding her heart. But, luckily, this does not continue for long. Dionysus, the God of wine and his party come across a saddened Ariadne. Dionysus feels for Ariadne, who gave up her palace, family and everything else for a man who threw her away. The the mood of the story then changes to one that is heartfelt as Dionysus and Ariadne fall in love and live on Mount Olympus among gods and have several children. The theme comes into play when the mortal Ariadne dies and Dionysus throws the golden, 9 jeweled, crown he gave to her on their wedding day, into the night sky and watches as the jewels become stars so that no one ever forgets his love, Ariadne. The myth that follows a tragic tale gives Ariadne her happy ending. This is one thing that is not displayed in most greek myths i have read, but is a welcome one after what Ariadne had given up. ( )
