King Midas is a good man, and he is a devoted father to his daughter, Aurelia. Yet Midas knows no music sweeter than the rattling of gold coins, and the more gold he gathers, the more he desires. When a mysterious stranger offers to gran the king a single wish as a reward for a kindness, Midas does not hesitate: He wishes that all he touches would turn to gold. But all too soon, he learns that what at first seems a blessing can also become a curse.
The legendary man with the magic touch comes alive as a remarkably complex figure in this breathtaking new vision of perhaps the most universal of all Greek myths. Kinuko Craft's radiant paintings glow with human drama, natural beauty, and golden splendor.
