Pinkie's Picks: Orpheus by Charles Mikolaycak


ORPHEUS by Charles Mikolaycak

I bought this picture book in the children's department, but it's definitely a book for teens or anyone interested in Greek myth. With its story of doomed love and a romantic hero, Orpheus's illustrations are beautiful, reminiscent of Maxfield Parrish. The story, the Greek myth about a young musician who attempts to rescue his beloved Eurydice from the underworld and fails, is poignantly written. I've included Orpheus as one of Pinkie's Picks because it's a picture book for those of us who love fantasy. And picture books!
