Bio prepared by Allison Rosenblum, Bar Ilan University, firstname.lastname@example.org
Pandora Johnson receives a new chest of drawers with a secret locked inside. She and her friend, Lucy, learn that sometimes it’s better to leave things alone after they open the drawer and enchanted socks escape, wreaking havoc all around.
Contemporary twist on the story of Pandora’s Box, appropriate for all ages. This story takes the elements of curiosity and a closed box with something inside from the myth of Pandora’s vase, and adapts it to a contemporary setting, making the lesson about the dangers of curiosity more accessible to today’s children. The story adds a magical element by having enchanted socks escape from the drawer.
