BUT a reduced rating for volume 3 because there is no list of titles so you have no idea which myth is where or even whether a particular myth is included. It's a needle in a haystack. Volume 1 and volume 2 - both with 2 cds - have a leaflet giving the titles of the individual myths, so you can pick and choose on these volumes. Volume 3 has 3 cds - good value, but no booklet.
It is useful to be able to choose a favourite: for instance, if in everyday life you come across a reference to eg. Orpheus or Heracles or some other mythological character, you can pick one track out to show that particular story. And some are more interesting/suitable for a child's interest than others.
So we end up not listening to volume 3 so much, which is a pity. The three volumes are set out as one big story of Atticus going to compete in a storytelling competition, so to complete the big story you need to hear the last few tracks of the last cd of Volume 3, but the individual stories can stand alone.
Our youngest (10) has had the previous two volumes as her bedtime listening since they came out, and was delighted when the 3rd volume arrived - especially as it is just as good as the previous two.
We now have hours and hours of brilliantly told tales that will entertain for years to come.
They are a selection of short stories pitched perfectly for children and they seem to be particularly popular at bedtime....
I am delighted I made this purchase!
