About this deal

Kids don't always love what their parents love, however, so I put it on his shelf and waited for him to discover it.

I think that this approach works fairly well, in that it maintains the integrity of the myth, while making it more appropriate for the younger child at whom this book is aimed.Here are the gods, goddesses, and legendary figures of ancient Greece--mighty Zeus, with his fistful of thunderbolts; gray-eyed Athena, goddess of wisdom; Helios, the sun; greedy King Midas--lavishly depicted by Caldecott winners Ingri and Edgar Parin d'Aulaire.

Kids can lose themselves in a world of myth and magic while learning important cultural history in this beloved classic collection of Greek mythology. This classic introduction to Greek mythology for children, written and illustrated by the husband-wife team, is divided into three main sections. The retellings of the myths are vibrant and fascinating and the illustrations are mild enough for a child to enjoy but compelling enough to interest an adult. Her uncle, for instance, was a clergyman and poet who translated the Icelandic Eddas into Norwegian and set his own poetry to music by Edvard Grieg. This volume was carefully printed to reproduce the vibrant color and texture of the original lithographs, and includes a glowing foreword by Michael Chabon.This is the very first book I remember reading all by my little self when I was three and I have read it a million more times. It breaks my heart a little that my son is, for some perverse reason of his own, fixed in the idea that he doesn't like Greek myths. I remember taking this book out of the library at my elementary school, Queensland Downs Elementary School, when I was in Mrs. F -- Fates: The ones who said they knew the future, the ones who knew when people were going to die. Hands down the best book of Greek Myths ever, this classic is a good introduction for kids and holds up as a principal reference work for adults.
