The writing is lovely, illustrations and all-round presentation of the book is beautiful. A very nice re-telling and ideal as a gift. I have a few from the collection and they look great on my bookcase.
I bought this as a gift for my Dad because he is so hard to buy for and from what he's told me (and the amount he's been looking at it!) he loves it. The illustrations are beautiful and everything down to the last detail is absolutely gorgeous. (:
My grandson aged 11 loves the Greek myths & I haven't found that many books aimed at his age group about this subject. This is an American book, which is mainly obvious in the preface. The stories are articulately written, & just the right amount of challenging vocabulary for 11-12 year old. The illustrations are traditional & beautiful, the cover has a 'special book' look. A nice volume for a gift
