5* for the stories on all 3 volumes. Suitable for anyone over their sixth birthday - adults too. Interesting and educational, and the Greek/Roman myths are fascinating cultural background for anyone in the western world.
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.
