Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up A spirited retelling of the origin and history of the race of Cyclopes from Greek mythology, this is a handsome volume. Evslin's language is both earthy and poetic; his retelling of the Cyclopes myth(s) is compelling and dramatic, from the birth of the monsters to Gaia, ``whose name means earth,'' to the blinding of Polyphemus by Ulysses. Beautifully detailed and carefully designed (each chapter begins with an initial letter rubric that draws on mythological motifs), this is a heavily illustrated book, with over 40 reproductions of fine art masterpieces (i.e., Goya, Renoir, Cellini) in color and black and white. Evslin's accessible and exhilarating writing style makes this an eminently successful combination of art and text. Given the strong demand for and high interest in the subject, as well as the high quality of this presentation, this is an outstanding addition to any mythology collection, easily booktalked and highly motivational for both reluctant and avid readers.

    Passion and Revenge

    The cyclopes were destined to be the servants of the gods. Born of the union of Uranus and Gaia, Mother of the Earth, they were unfortunately cursed with a horrendous appearance. They were huge creatures, with a single eye in the centers of their foreheads.

    Although the cyclopes may have suffered from their cruel treatment, they rose above their afflictions to become excellent artisans and craftsmen. Their metal work and creation of thunderbolts for Zeus were spectacular.

    This is a wonderful tale of the intrigue of the gods, a story of love and jealousy, pity, woe and revenge. All of our human emotions are showcased in the plight of the cyclopes, lovingly told by one of the masters of mythology, Bernard Evslin.
