Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The colorful, vibrant, and lifelike cover of this title is sure to capture a young reader's interest. The illustrations and layout of the text are inviting to the reader, and student-friendly. Part of the "Ancient Myths" series, this title includes the background on who Perseus was along with his slaying of Medusa among the tales being told. At the end of each story of Perseus, a brief detail to supplement the tale is provided for the reader. A table of contents, introduction, glossary, a "who's who" with pronunciation key, and an index are included. This is a welcome supplemental or a key resource in covering Ancient Greek civilization. 2005 (orig. 2004), Picture Window Books, Ages 8 up.
