Pegasus - Marianna Mayer, K.Y. Craft The illustrations by Craft are pretty, and there are plenty of them, but they are not my favorites of hers. And the text, although adequate, seemed a little stilted. It wasn't a great or particularly authentic retelling of the Bellerophon myth. I felt like Mayer was trying to make the story fit a later mold of fairy tale (face challenges, win princess, live happily ever after).
