Psyche and Eros by Marcia Williams
Psyche and Eros is a highly attractive way to introduce children to one of the great Greek myths: Aphrodite, the goddess of love, is deeply jealous of Psyche, a beautiful human girl. When Aphrodite's son, Eros, falls in love with Psyche, Aphrodite tries to get rid of her in various unusual ways. But Psyche isn't just a pretty face. Colourful cartoons and comic dialogue bring Psyche and her adventures with the God of Love and in the Underworld right up to date! The cartoon format will appeal to reluctant readers Psyche and Eros is one of eleven books that make up Extended Reading Level A, for children in Year 5/Primary 6.
