I would buy her books. Why aren't these books I can buy and read to my kids?

Yes indeed! This would be so wonderful laid out in a picture book, thick pages to turn over and over again as a favorite bedtime story!

I love the classic mythologies - sweet tales of how the gods were total jerks to one another, and how that caused most of the observable world to come into being.

This was indeed sweet and I would totally buy a picture book with thick pages.

So wonderful. Up until the ending, I thought it was a real folktale, and even then I would have believed it was based on one.

Yeah, the actual happy ending is the only thing that gives it away as a modern story, and not a traditional folktale :)

I love her illustrations so much. So precise in some ways and so loose in others.

Perhaps it's best they aren't, because they would scar your children for life. "His Face All Red"... yikes.
