What could possibly go wrong?
This fun, brightly illustrated read-aloud will charm fans of the Elephant and Piggie series as Mr. Monkey gets one zany mishap after another.
This book is an EPIC, to be sure! It spans millennia, taking you through the life of a so-called "lesser goddess", Circe, who we come to know intimately and to love dearly. Circe's story is a quiet one, yet a righteously triumphant redemption story, as she comes into her own power and owns the world as her own. You find yourself riveted, rooting for Circe’s successes and growing power at every turn. Madeline Miller's words read like poetry, every sentence a living thing in itself, full of so much...Oh, what a true PLEASURE to read!!
