“Pandora” (Clarion Books, April 2017), a picturebook by the British author and illustrator Vitoria Turnbull, does not seem to have many connections to Antiquity, apart from the title.
After all, it is a story about the lonely fox that finds a friend in a blue bird.
However, if we get a closer look, we discover that it is actually a metaphor for many issues concerning womanhood, including depression and hope that constitute the core of Pandora’s myth. Sometimes it is good to dig a bit deeper… 🙂
