Review:
Elegance is a word useful in physics, gymnastics, architecture and book design. There's a strong - even a moral - argument to be made for giving children well-designed books, skillfully illustrated, well printed on good paper, written with a mature vocabulary and sentence structure. Alison Lurie's retelling of the Greek myths behind the constellations is, in each respect, an elegant book.
