Synopsis

Pandora's Box by Rose Impey

Some people, when they are told they must not do something, simply have to do it. Pandora is one of these people...Pandora is talented and the perfect companion for her husband, but she has this one fatal flaw. She tries her hardest to stay away from the wedding gift that she has been warned never to touch: a strange, carved box. Yet finally her curiosity gets the better of her and she opens it, thereby unleashing all the ills and evils into the world. But as Pandora despairs at what she's done, she sees one final thing remains in the box - a small thing called hope.

About the Author

Rose Impey

Rose Impey lives in a small village in Leicestershire. She is very well known and highly regarded as a writer of books for children of all ages. It was her experience of telling stories in school as a teacher that led to her starting to write them down. She is a popular visitor to schools and libraries where she reads her work aloud to captivated audiences.

Rose has a deep love and extensive knowledge of fairy and folk tales. For the Fairy Tales series (also available in a collection called The Orchard Book of Fairy Tales) and for the Twice Upon a Time series she thoroughly researched the stories of Grimm, Perrault and Joseph Jacobs before retelling them in her own spirited, direct and authoritative way.

Rose received a great deal of praise for her series Colour Crackers, a series of lively, funny stories, which has the widest possible appeal. Rhode Island Roy was read on Jackanory. She has also written stories for picture books. Joe's Cafe won the Sheffield Children's Book Award.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
