This is the second picture book retelling of Pegasus that I've encountered. The first was Pegasus authored by Mariana Mayer and lushly illustrated by the incomparable Kinuko Craft. It's a great book, but I recall being a little disappointed that it left out some of the grimmer aspects of the story. And so I was glad to see that this one, authored by the venerable Jane Yolen, continues the story after Bellerophon's triumphs and chronicles his tragedies as well. All in all, this is a very nicely told story and definitely not as grim as it could be - making it appropriate for most young children. I liked the story telling framing device. And the illustrations by Ling Mi are enjoyable - very arresting with regards to Pegasus and the other magical beings, but perhaps less so with the human figures. Definitely recommended for fans of well told myths.
