Mini Myths: 3rd annual September is for Sequels giveaway hop!

Be Patient, Pandora! and Play Nice, Hercules! 
are the first two titles in this board book series for ages 0 to 4.
Both debut on September 16,
so it's hard to say which is the sequel.
Two winners will each receive one autographed book.
Not entering would be a big mythstake.

by Joan Holub
illustrated by the bestselling Leslie Patricelli
(Yummy Yucky; Quiet Loud). 
Be Patient Pandora received a
starred review in Publishers Weekly:
"less a retelling of the story
of Pandora than a modern (and entirely delightful) twist on it.
Instructed by her mother not to open a neatly wrapped box,
Pandora grins mischievously at readers. “I am not opening the
box. I am only touching it.” Luckily, after bouncing on the box
causes it to fly open, it isn’t the evils of the world that pour out.
Patricelli’s preschool-age Pandora couldn’t be cuter, and an
endnote explains the original myth in greater detail. 
Genuinely funny and sweet."
