Genre: Myths Review: This book tells all about the different Greek mythology characters from ancient Greece. It combines a lot of the stories told in Greek mythology such as the creation of earth, battles over the gods and their reign, stories of family, and individual stories about the different characters. This story is, therefore, a Myth book because it tells all about the Greek mythology characters and stories. There really is no good character because there are so many main characters; no one set setting because it takes place all over; not a good set plot because it has individual stories throughout; and there were no styles or points of view that were represented. Media: First drawn in pencil on heavy cold-press paper. Then inked and colored with washes of gouache paints and colored pencils.

This book tells the stories of the gods and goddesses of Olympus. It tells of the myth of creation and how the most commonly known gods came to be. The strength of this book is the colorful art which accompanies each story about the gods and goddesses.

This book was just okay. I didn't care for the illustrations or the content since it wasn't really made that interesting for me. I've read a lot of myths before over and over again and I didn't think that this was particularly interesting. I don't know if kids would really enjoy this. The style is also kind of dated looking which kids might not like, too. I know it's by a well-respected author, but I was not impressed. It clearly belongs in a mythology unit. Each student could do a report on one particular god or goddess in the unit.

My son asked me to buy a book about Greek Mytology after reading the Perry Jackon series books. He is really interested in knowing all about Gods and Goddesses as well as other characters and has enjoyed this book. He has looked an read it so many times now, but every time he learns more.

Beautiful pictures, easy to understand. My 4 and 5 year old love to read this book and pick out all of the gods and goddesses. An exceptional book for anyone beginning Greek mythology. This is a keeper!

I borrowed this book from my teacher for a school assignment. It helped me so much. The pictures are very well done and the literature on the god is short, but very helpful. This was a great book. It says ages 4-8, I say ages 4-80!
