A stunning visual and narrative of Greek Mythology for young readers.
on 29 December 2014
Beautifully narrated, illustrated and loved by those who read it! I first bought this book for my son who is obsessed with Greek Mythology. To date, I have bought numerous copies as gifts for children ranging from 6-12 years of age. Donna Jo Napoli has selected a familiar range of Gods,Goddeses Heroes and Monsters who are the greats of Ancient Greek Mythology with a few surprises twists and turns. Well written and very readable in a clear and easy comprehensive style it appeals to all reading abilities and engages the reader's interest. Stunning illustrations set in an elegant framework, Christina Balit provides a richness and depth of colour and non -threatening images where the reader experiences the magic of the myth. Generally a great introduction to Greek mythology!
