Award-winning author Julius Lester brings his renowned storytelling skills to one of the most famous tales in classical mythology and weaves together a romantic, hilarious drama. Cupid is the god of love and a tireless maker of mischief. When he breaks out his bow and quiver, nobody's safe. Sleepless nights, embarrassing poetry, nausea ... What could be more fun? Only, perhaps, seeing the god of love humbled with a little heartache of his own. With healthy doses of wit and wisdom, Julius Lester's disarming narrator leads us through the tale of Cupid and Psyche--and helps us navigate our own treacherous passions.
