One thought on “King Midas: A Golden Tale

  1. Shawn Thrasher

    Definitely a good starting point for Greek and Roman mythology Rayyan s paintings are lovely and amusing Fantasy lovers will love this one The story lacked some depth for me I think the horrifying moment when Midas realizes his beloved daughter has been turned into gold should be, well, a bit horrifying Seemed like a wasted moment But overall, a solid picture book.

    I remember hearing about King Midas as a child I was fascinated that everything he touched turned to gold This version of the popular Greek Myth was absoulutely amazing The illustrations were full of detail and there was some humor that maybe only adults would pick up on Some pages were filled with bold colors of red and purple, where some pages had muted pastels The pictures of King Midas were made to look like ancient Greece, such as the attire and the pillars etc but there were modern inserti [...]

    Be careful what you wish for I can not imagine having everything I touch turn immediately into gold It would definitely get old quickly The pastel colors used in the illustrations reflect the statues or marbles one would find in the palace of King Midas I think that a previous knowledge of mythical creatures would help the reader understand the time period or setting of this book Also, would help the reader understand many of the sly witticisms the illustrator placed in the illustrations like Ki [...]

    If I could give this stars I would This is a retelling of the classic story of King Midas The words themselves are well done But the illustrations are the star of the show They are beautiful, whimsical, imaginative, and wonderful Each page has facets of mythology included as beautiful side notes to the story Amazing creatures watch sadly as King Midas gets giddy over gold at the expense of eating and hugging his daughter My words cannot do justice This is a great book, one of our family s favor [...]

    While the story was told wonderfully, it was the illustrations in this one that won me over Rayyan s melding of ancient and modern as well as his attention to detail made me chuckle In my opinion, this is by far the best take on the King Midas tale out there.
