Book Description

Pandora and her friends Alcie, Iole, and Homer are practically evil-hunting experts. Jealousy, Vanity, and Laziness are all safely in the box and they already know Lust is lurking on Mount Pelion, so this fourth task should be super easy.

Just one teeny tiny problem: the evil is hiding at a wedding that took place 1,300 years ago. Luckily, the messenger god, Hermes steps in to help Pandy and her friends travel back in time-with just one rule: don't change anything. At the wedding, they recognize most of the gods and goddesses, but nobody recognizes them. (Duh, they haven't been born yet.) So they can search for the evil without drawing attention to themselves. But then Lust appears in the middle of a fateful argument between three of the most powerful goddesses. There's no way Pandora can capture the evil without making a big scene. And worse, if she takes it at the wrong moment, she won't just change the course of history-she'll be history. Yup, this quest is totally under control . . . gulp!

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-7 With the help of Hermes, Pandy and her friends travel back in time 1300 years to Mount Pelion in search of Lust at the wedding of mortal King Peleus to the goddess Thetis. Upset that she was not invited, Eris, the Goddess of Discord, places Lust in a golden apple with To the fairest engraved on it and hurls it into the ceremony. Lust for the apple falls upon Aphrodite, Athena, and Hera. Pandy and her friends go through many ordeals in order to retrieve it, including Paris's judging of who is the fairest, being maimed or blinded, Hera's meddling, and going back to the near present to retrieve the golden apple from a new temple for Aphrodite. Hennesy brings a light, convivial tone to the dialogue and plot that while adding a modern spin at times seems awkward and distracts from the story. Pandora Gets Heart is a suitable addition for those who have purchased other books in the series others might consider passing on it. Adrienne L. Strock, Maricopa County Library District, AZ

By M. Lee
As a mother who screens everything her 11-year-old daughter reads, I was very happy to read and then pass on the fourth book in Carolyn Hennesy's Pandora series. It took me back to when I first started getting excited about Greek mythology and fueled my interest in travelling to Greece - and from there, the world! Lovely series for pre-teens. In the words of my daughter,

"The book, Pandora Gets Heart, by Carolyn Hennesy, continues the series which started when Pandora opened a box, and released a number of evils. Now, she must return them to their proper place in the box. This time, she must capture Lust and go back in time to find a golden apple. On the way, Pandora meets her father and Zeus on a whirlwind of adventure. I would recommend this book to any girl who is into Greek mythology and adventure with a touch of comedy. Personally, I thought it was great, especially at the beginning when Iole has a birthday party and catches the evil, Overeating, in a piece of meat. The only thing I had an issue with was the end, but you have to read it to find out!!!"
