The idea is wonderful - introduce my daughter to the great Greek Mythology. It was going to fit perfectly with her love of stories and wild imagination. But the stories are dull, not exciting, are very brief and divided in a way that makes you think each is a short 'independent' story, only to realise that you're starting from the middle of a story and that it is, in fact quite a long one.
I agree with the comment that said these are stories of stories. It is not what I expected and I don't think my daughter even begins to appreciate this wonderful world. I will, for sure be looking to get a different book to create a 'correcting experience'. Shame.
