About this deal

I gave this book four stars instead of five because I wanted the pictures to be bigger, a lot of the drawings are tiny. Theseus wanted to kill the hairy Minotaur because a lot of weak tributes from Athens got sent each year and it wasn’t fair. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. The book includes 8 common Greek myths (though one was new to me, or at least far back in my memory banks) and sets them up in comic strip fashion rather than more common comic book/graphic novel format. This book is a collection of some of the most famous and classic greek myths including "Pandora's Box," "Arion and the Dolphins," "Orpheus and Eurydice," "The Twelve Tasks of Hercules," Daedalus and Icarus," "Perseus and the Gorgon's Head," "Theseus and the Minotaure," and "Arachne Versus Athena.

The way this book is designed is perfect for introducing Greek Mythogy at a young age expanding their understanding of culture and classic "old school" literature.Though some of the stories are a little hard to follow, and shortened so much that the long names make up a large proportion of the overall letter count, my 7-year-old really likes this comic book version of some of the most famous Greek myths.

This makes it hard to go off of the reviews since the other review gushed about the comic-book style of these myths. Wonderful art and a great way to introduce children to the myths, exciting reading for older reluctant readers and a fun way for adult classicists to see the tales told in a new light. The stories include ‘Orpheus and Eurydice’, ‘Theseus and the Minotaur’, ‘Perseus and the Gorgon’s Head’. The author does a nice job of preserving the original myth while still simplifying it enough for young readers to understand.Has the same healthy attitude of seriousness mixed with irreverence as the Greeks themselves; every page crammed with hilarious, minutely detailed strip drawings. I really liked that there were myths I was not too familiar with, and that they were all focused on different characters.
