Synopsis

Mini Myths: Be Patient, Pandora! by Joan Holub

When four-year-old 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 famously humorous illustrations bring a playful narrative to Joan Holub's carefully crafted text. This book, along with Hercules, launches the Mini Myths, a series of mythologically-inspired modern-day parables in board book form, featuring a read-aloud summary of the Greek myth at the very end.
