The picture book “Mère Méduse” (“Mother Medusa”) was published for the first time in November 2014. The author of the book – Kitty Crowther (writer and illustrator of children’s books) explains in her blog post (see below) that for her, “Mother Medusa is a descendant of Medusa from Greek mythology.” She emphasizes that the tragic story of the mythological Medusa was a huge inpiration for her and she recalles on the blog the Ovidian version of the myth in which Medusa was raped by Poseidon and punished by Athena.
The main character of the book – Mother Medusa, like the mythological Medusa, is withdrawn from society because of her appearance: “It’s as if she’s locked up in her own hair. Only her daughter can approach her. So much hair she cannot untangle it.”
