Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-These four volumes describe the mythological and legendary origins of each monster, as well as representations of the creatures in modern film, television, and toys. For example, in Medusa, readers learn of the ancient Greek myths about the Gorgon sisters, the story of Perseus killing Medusa, sculptures and paintings featuring this snake-haired creature, movies such as 7 Faces of Dr. Lao and Clash of the Titans, and the computer games Hercules and Age of Mythology. Numerous full-color and black-and-white reproductions of paintings, sculptures, drawings, and movie and television stills are placed carefully in the appropriate spots within the texts. A flaw in each of the books, probably of more importance to adults than to young readers, is the incomplete credits for most of the illustrations. The books are clearly written and contain fascinating information that will satisfy both casual browsers and serious report writers.-Ginny Gustin, Sonoma County Library System, Santa Rosa, CA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
