Aphrodite, Hera, and Athena are competing for Paris’s candy apple. When Aphrodite offers Paris a toy horse, she wins the prize! But her bragging results in the hurt feelings of others. When Aphrodite stops boasting, though, and offers to share her snack instead, the three friends happily play together. Leslie Patricelli’s illustrations bring a lively visual narrative to Joan Holub’s expertly focused text. Includes a summary of the original myth of Aphrodite and the Golden Apple.
