This is a book that I adore because the pictures have so much detail and color. Plus the way the author told each story and all people that are greek or not can relate to each myth in the book. There are points in the book that make it really interesting. Most of the pictures have bright colors . I like the way each story yet all the stories stick to the name of the tittle. I love the book and thats why.
This book is accurate, but DON'T BUY THIS BOOK! Now there is a couple reasons for this. First off is that they use the roman names for the Greek god's names, and second is that when you call it off as "Greek Myths", they have to be 100% Greek names! DON'T BUY THIS! DON'T!
My daughter read The Lightning Thief and became interested in mythological characters so we went on a search to find a children's book about the subject. This book is what we found. She read all the Magic Tree House books so she was familiar with Mary Pope Osborne. She loved this book and reads it over and over.
