Unlike Marianna Mayers "Unicorn and the Lake", this book is not easily understood by children under te. I feel so appreciative that there is a writer like Marianna Mayer and an illustrator the caliber of Kinuko Craft out out there creating such beautiful "works of art" for children.

Unlike Marianna Mayers "Unicorn and the Lake", this book is not easily understood by children under ten. While the illustrations will indeed capture the attention of children and adults alike, small children lose interest when they cannot understand the names, and many of the words. These types of stories I feel make children frustrated.

Mayer's graceful prose conveys both the wonder and power of the tale. Complementing the text are Craft's illustrations done in a mixture of watercolor, gouache, and oils. I bought this because I love Kinuko Crafts illustrations. And I wasn't disappointed. The palette of red and gold set against a dark background resembles Russian folk-art paintings on black-lacquered wood. There are so many of them, like one on every opposing page, which is the way I like them presented as the children can look at the picture while you read to them.

Marianna Mayer, Kinuko Y. I'm always amazed at Craft's detail, and use of light, as well as her amazing ability to create fairy worlds and gods that are only semi-transparent. This book contains beautiful two-page spreads that left me wanting to examine every inch of paper. Pegasus is a traditional literature book and falls under the sub genre of myths. I have always enjoyed reading about Greek Mythology and learning more about the many beliefs and stories created. The illustrations were so vibrant and beautiful.

I collect well illustrated children's books and read to young children. Art captures the attention of young budding readers and draws them into a well illustrated story. Unlike Marianna Mayers "Unicorn and the Lake", this book is not easily understood by children under ten. While the illustrations will indeed capture the attention of children and adults alike, small children lose interest when they cannot understand the names, and many of the words. These types of stories I feel make children frustrated. The only way a child may enjoy this story is by reading one-on-one and explaining every detail. Even this method would be acceptable if it were a story worth reading.

The story is complicated but the same old story we see and read about every day - two young people fall in love, parent disapproves, the young man must prove himself, the young man wins, etc., etc. Not a story for children really. The tale includes a woman who weeps for her lost child by a river, a two headed monster, and kings.

The only reason I did not return this book is the art. Pegasus is illustrated with grand detail. The white color of his body is accomplished using many pastel colors and lots of shadows. There is a rainbow in his mane. I am using this book to demonstrate to children interested in drawing with colored pencils, how to make white, shadows and the importance of nature. The story can wait.

Q: How many stars?
A: ALL OF THEM.
Q: What did you like best?
A: I liked the Pegasus. And the dragon. (Chimera) The dragon looked cool. And I liked the little knight-warrior that got rid of the big dragon-serpent-whatever-it-is. (Bellerophon)
Q: What was the worst part?
A: There was no worst part.
Q: What do you wish the book told you more about?
A: Where the Pegasus came from and how the dragon (chimera) was made and that kind of stuff. IT'S SO AWESOME!

(Note: I hadn't read the book before I gave it to him, so I had assumed it was about Pegasus and Perseus, the blood of Medusa, and all that, so those were the sorts of questions I started asking him when he finished reading. But this book is strictly about Pegasus and Bellerophon and the Chimera, and skips all the messy details of Bellerophon's backstory, and cuts out while Bellerophon was still happily-ever-after. One oddly post-Disney-animal-sidekick-modern part was that Athena dictated that Bellerophon and Pegasus must be as equals in order to succeed in their task, and later on, they "had become brothers, bonded by a trust that neither could ever forget." But KY Craft's art is beautiful and worth the purchase of the book by itself.)

Absolutely beautiful illustrations in this book. Recommend for ages 2-16 because of the artwork. Reading level is about 3-4 th grade. Interesting retelling of the tale of Pegasus from the ancient Greeks.

Pegasus is drawn here just as I've always imagined him, and the Chimera is a perfect nightmare beast. This is a very clear story of good vs. evil, with the handsome, daring, and successful Bellerophon (spoiler!) defeating the clearly very evil Chimera (previously shown burning people's homes with his fiery breath). A very satisfying story with lots of drama, excellent for children.

My 12 year old daughter discovered this book in the library and thought she was in heaven. We had no idea that books like this even existed. Not many parents in our area are even aware of them and they are not often signed out of the library. I feel so appreciative that there is a writer like Marianna Mayer and an illustrator the caliber of Kinuko Craft out out there creating such beautiful "works of art" for children. Pegasus can be appreciated by older children (and adults) because the language is elegant and sophisticated. The sumptuous illustrations are beneficial to children who are visual learners. Amazon is offering this book, with dust jacket, at an amazingly low price. Although Mayer/Craft are at the top of her list, she has also discovered other illustrators such as Ruth Sanderson and Gennady Spirin who Amazon brought to her attention after we ordered books by Mayer/Craft.

We love this version of the classic Beleraphon myth! Craft's illustrations are magical!

This book retells the ancient Greek myth of Pegasus and his heroic rider Bellerophon in simple language that makes it an ideal introduction to Greek mythology for young children. While this story recounts Bellerophon's and Pegasus' battle against the fiercesome Chimera, it's primary focus is on the trust that develops between rider and steed, and how this trust enables their success.
A very nice picture book with very pretty and plentiful illustrations. The story was a little long There are parts of the myth that could have been deleted without spoiling the story line.
