The Golden Ass Reviews
Aşırı eğlenceli, aşırı dolu bir kitap. Fantastiğin, karnavalın gırla olduğu bir efsane.
A very entertaining, fast-paced story based on the work of Lucius Apuleius. I think it would be a good read for Latin students or anyone studying the Ancient World.
Mark Usher, AM'94, PhD'97AuthorFrom our pages (May–June/12): "M. D. Usher, a classics professor at the University of Vermont, has adapted a Latin novel from the second century AD. His children's book tells the story of Prudentius a boy obsessed with magic who accidentally turns himself into a donkey."
An entertaining, engaging, mostly faithful adaptation though most of the raunchiness is tamed. The Cupid and Psyche episode is omitted but the author explains why in the afterword. Jauntily illustrated by T. Motley.
