Love it! The book focuses on King Midas' golden touch issue but it sets him up and introduces him first as a dumb and backward king. It covers his judging of the music contest between Pan and Apollo and how he got his donkey ears. Midas plays with Silenus a bit too. Then it moves onto the golden touch business. So fun. My kids thoroughly enjoy this book. They're 6 & 8 years old. Bold art and the story holds their attention. Edit: We bought this one and read it often!
