The story of Cupid and Psyche is one of my favorites from Greek/Roman mythology (I even have a Waterhouse print of Psyche hanging in my guest bedroom). I have always been fascinated by the "Beauty and the Beast" story of star-crossed lovers, however, I was pretty disappointed by this particular re-telling. It was written as an introduction to mythology for pre-teens, but the author took a lot of liberties with the original story. The best part of the book were the beautiful Grecian-style illustrations by Ati Forberg.
