In print for over fifty years, "D'Aulaires Book of Greek Myths"has introduced generations to Greek mythology and continues to enthrall young readers.
Here are the greats of ancient Greece gods and goddesses, heroes and monsters as freshly described in words and pictures as if they were alive today:
Powerful Zeus, king of the gods, with his fistful of thunderbolts
Hermes, mischievous trickster and messenger of the gods
Gray-eyed Athena, goddess of wisdom and battle strategy
The monstrous Minotaur, slain by brave Theseus
Snake-haired Medusa the gorgon, turning enemies to stone with her steely stare
Hercules the mightiest, part mortal, part god
These and other equally magnificent figures parade across the pages, their heroic deeds and petty squabbles illuminated in full dimension.
No other volume of Greek mythology has inspired as many young readers as this timeless classic. Both adults and children alike will find this book a treasure for years to come.
For any child fortunate enough to have this generous book . . . the kings and heroes of ancient legend will remain forever matter-of-fact; the pictures interpret the text literally and are full of detail and witty observation. "The Horn Book"
The drawings . . . are excellent and excitingly evocative. "The New York Times"
