This illustrated guide to greek myths and legends is a book I grew up with! I was instantly fascinated by the amazing pictures by Rodney Matthews.
It covers all the major stories, and some lesser known ones too! Theres a large glossary at the end with details of 200 gods and characters from the legends. It lists the families, aims, personalities and skills of everyone important. The handy pronunciation guide is great for younger readers too. Theres a good introduction to the geography of greece and its basic history, then its straight in with the creation myths and the world as the greeks saw it. Covers everything from the Trojan War, to wicked women like Medusa, to the Labours of Heracles!
Really, really fantastic! Ideal for any budding classisist! Or anyone just wanting a quick introduction to the subject! Should be taught in schools!!!
