Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
As part of the World Mythology series, Capstone Press has put together a wonderful collection of six books that highlights some of the more well-known Greek and Roman mythological characters. This commentary on Diana tells the story of this goddess of the hunt and the Moon and gives a summary of her exploits, including her encounter with Actaeon and her adventures with her cousin Orion. In addition, it tells us the jealousy of Apollo, Orion's twin brother. A basic overview on mythology, past and present, is also provided, along with pictures of famous drawings and artifacts, a glossary, a further study section, and a map of Ancient Greece. Overall, this is a great way to introduce young readers to the world of mythology and how early man explained many of the phenomena happening in the world around them. It also gives readers insight into where certain perspectives, clichés, and beliefs that are still prevalent in our culture today came from. 2003, Capstone Press, Ages 10 up.
