A Greek FolktaleBook - 1997
What is Princess Areti to do? No suitor can please her, so she decides to make a man of her own. From sugar, almonds, and semolina wheat comes Mr. Semolina-Semolinus -- five times beautiful and ten times kind. But when he is kidnapped by an evil queen, the brave Areti must journey to the moon, the sun, and the stars to get him back.
A traditional Greek folktale with a thoroughly modern twist, Mr. Semolina-Semolinus is sure to delight children and adults alike. Sparkling debuts all around by an exciting new illustrator and a team of scholar/authors -- who have concocted this beguiling treat!
