From Our Editors

The sign hanging on Ruby’s bedroom door reads: "NO! This means you!" But since Max can’t read, he goes in anyway. Unfortunately, Ruby catches him popping open her jewelry box to take a look at what’s inside. Instead of getting mad, Ruby decides to tell him the story of Pandora who also opened a box she shouldn’t have. Incomparable children’s illustrator and storyteller Rosemary Wells does a delightful job of retelling the ancient Greek legend in Max and Ruby in Pandora’s Box.
