Ebook Ü King Midas and the Golden Touch ã M. Charlotte Craft

Rpasses all else save his love for his daughter If only everything he touched would turn to gold When Midas is granted that single wish he rejoices until he nearly loses his beloved child to his greed Here is a skillfully retold story of extraordinary resonance and wisdom with a message no reader will soon forget Radiant paintings glow with luxurious golden splendo The myth of King Midas is one of my favourite stories from the Greek tradition but I really enjoyed Craft's change of location to a mock War of the Roses era England Greed for gold is afterall a universal problem and the contrast of the living roases that the King's daughter loves so much is a nice nod to the English themes
