When Cupid takes aim-duck! Cupid is the god of love and a tireless maker of mischief. When he breaks out his bow and quiver, nobody's safe. Sleepless nights, embarrassing poetry, nausea...?hat could be more fun? Only, perhaps, seeing the god of love humbled with a little heartache of his own. With healthy doses of wit and wisdom, Julius Lester's disarming narrator leads us through the tale of Cupid and Psyche-and helps us navigate our own treacherous passions. From the Compact Disc edition.

Professional reviews

"Julius Lester's writing is so strong that his words often seem to leap off the pages. His latest story, which focuses on the ancient characters of Cupid and Psyche, introduces a storyteller who has been married six times so is quite an authority on love. The deep-voiced Stephen Henderson steps easily into this role. The storyteller's many asides and figures of speech might be annoying in written form, but as voiced in Henderson's fluid reading, they jazz up the classic love story. The result is a memorable presentation of Greek gods, goddesses, and, of course, Psyche, the great beauty who must regain the love of Cupid after she breaks his trust. S.W.
