Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6�9—Informative, if a little wordy, this series is excellent for research. Each book covers the mythology of a country, continent, or group of people, with Greek mythology split into two volumes. Seven to 10 stories are featured in every book, all with "Expert Commentary" sections. Although the amount of information might be overwhelming, the short tales make reading more manageable, and the question-and-answer sections will help students focus on meaningful events.
