Dionysus, son of Zeus and god of wine and dance, returns to his native city of Thebes. While the city’s women are enchanted by his powers, Pentheus, king of Thebes, is determined to end the revelry on the streets. But destiny wills otherwise and a horrific nightmare unfolds... This re-telling of Euripides’ autumnal tragedy retains the playful yet dangerous lyricism of the original. The exquisite illustrations heighten the aesthetic appeal of this beautiful handcrafted book. - Highlighted Title of the Month, Independent Publisher Online, Nov 2005
