Summary
"The stories of the Greek mortals and immortals, and their legendary exploits, tower as tall now as they have for thousands of years. Join the twleve gods at the top of Mount Olympus, and learn the tales of Greek heroines and heroes, who performed extraordinary feats of strength, bravery, and intelligence"--Page [4] of cover

Review
Rachmuhl and Gastaut render the Greek gods, goddesses, heroes, and heroines in updated tales that are simple, direct, and engaging. The profiles span time from the birth of the Titans to the fall of Troy, using each chapter to tell the story of a character, including lesser-known figures. The book offers straightforward explanations around murder and infidelity but skirts other, more complex relationships (Theseus ditches Ariadne after realizing “he was too young for marriage... and he wanted to meet other women”). The art style invokes ancient Greek representations through its angles and simplified bodies. Whether as an opportunity to review Greek myths or an introduction for readers new to the subject, this book serves as a useful primer. Ages 9–12. (Sept.)
