I love Greek mythology. I would have loved this book when I was a kid. My first introduction to Greek mythology was reading the book series Dolphin Diaries, where the dolphin was named after Apollo. This book was filled with short origin stories of the Greek gods. They were each just a few pages long and told the most exciting stories about them. There were also some important mortals included at the end of the book including Jason, Achilles, Theseus, Helen and Atalanta. I loved the way the stories were simplified for children to read. I found it funny when the male gods were described as having “adventures” which ended in them having children. It was a euphemism for when they would assume a mortal form and seduce a woman, but I found it funny to call them adventures. I enjoyed this book. It’s a great guide to Greek mythology for young kids. I received a copy of this book from the publisher on NetGalley.

This is a beautiful take on Greek myths. The book brings us through multiple Greek tales and is accompanied by beautiful illustrations on every page. I was unfortunately expecting more of a retelling, than just restated mythology. But if it had been my first time reading the great tales of the Greek heroes and gods, I’m sure I would have really enjoyed it. As it is though, there wasn’t any new information, which made it drag a little bit. On the other had this book had gorgeous illustrations on every page, which I really did enjoy.

Seemed very promising, too bad the copy I received was illegible beyond the first chapter. I particularly liked the style of illustrations. I received a copy through Netgalley.

If you are into Greek Mythology I would recommend you pick up this book. The illustrations are really well done and as you would imagine the Gods to look like. From Zeus to Atalanta. You will find the story of them all here. My favorite is Poseidon. The beginning of the book has a map of them and how they are intertwined. This would be a very good book for anyone researching Greek Mythology for a report as it is easy to read and understand. I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

Many books have been written for children retelling the stories of the great Greek myths. This book deserves a welcome place on that shelf. Each God or Goddess is introduced with a paragraph stating their Latin name, their parents, their appearance, character traits and role. The stories are told in a lively manner that demonstrates the human qualities of the gods; they can be jealous, have affairs, go to war, fight with their siblings, etc. The illustrations are lovely and have a painterly quality. If you or your child wants to know more about mythology, take a look at this appealing book.
