Riassunto: When Max smuggles a pink-icing cupcake to his room, his sister, Ruby, tells him the tale of young Prince Midas, whose gorging on sweets had disastrous consequences for his whole family. By the author of Max and Ruby's First Greek Myth: Pandora's Box.
From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1?Max and Ruby return, as once again the bossy elder bunny attempts to shape up her impish sibling through the power of myth, this time teaching him the folly of gluttony. As Max tries to sneak off with a plate of luscious cupcakes, Ruby seizes the golden opportunity and proceeds to read him a story of a young prince named Midas who eats only sweets and discovers his talent for turning dreaded dishes into delectable delights?as well as, unfortunately, anyone he happens to touch. His family is transformed into life-sized caricatures of his favorite desserts, looking at him mournfully as they take the form of a cherry float or blob of lime jello. It's a hilarious story within a story, with the players?all rabbits, of course?adorned in ancient Greek dress and set against sunlit scenes of cerulean waters and gentle mountains. The confectionary colors set just the right mood, as do the positioning of modern sweets against classical motifs. The book is easy to read and predictable in the best sense?as always, Max is undaunted by the lesson, and, once again, he gets the last word. A truly modern retelling, straight from the lagomorph's mouth, and full of child appeal.?Trev Jones, School Library Journal
