Be Patient, Pandora! (Mini Myths)
Joan Holub & Leslie Patricelli
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
When Pandora is warned by her mother not to open a box, her spirited curiosity trumps her obedience. Pandora harmlessly touches the box, innocently leans on the box, and eventually, albeit accidentally, bursts the box open! The cupcakes that were hidden inside are ruined, except for one last vestige, which Pandora presents in the hope that her mother still loves her. Leslie Patricelli’s depictions of this physical comedy bring a lively narrative to Joan Holub’s carefully crafted text. Includes a summary of the original Pandora’s Box myth at the end.
Also available in the Mini Myths series: Don't Get Lost, Odysseus and Good Job, Athena!
