Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K–4—A strong choice for classroom read-alouds or lap-reading, this series has a perfect text-to-image balance. Three of the books are based on Roman mythology, with the fourth telling a legend of the Underground Railroad. The eye-catching artwork is consistent in style and tone, giving a uniform feeling to the set while still allowing the illustrators to showcase their talents. While the Roman names may give independent readers pause, the vocabulary is well-tailored to the age level. "Learn More" sections at the end of every volume provide more information. For example, in Orion readers learn that "In Hindu myth, Orion's constellation is actually the god Prajapati, who became a deer."
