My son (9 years) read it all and was very interested. I couldn't find easy Greek history books yet - so it was easy substitute.

This book is organized into short chapters, and is written in a style that is perfect for young readers learning Greek myths for the first time on their own. The pictures in the text support the stories and help bring them to life. I think this will be a perfect reference book on the shelf for years to come.

This book is about many heroes - Hercules, Perseus, Theseus and Orpheus. There are big monsters that the heroes battle. This is the best book I have ever read!!!
