Walk among the gods and goddesses, men and monsters, in this enchanting volume of classic Greek myths! Here are twelve of the most beloved legends of Greek mythology, from Pandora and her dreaded box to Icarus with his wings of wax, and, of course, that greedy, gold-fingered King Midas. Vibrant art adds a fresh twist to this collection, giving today's readers their own version of these timeless tales.

Eric A. Kimmel brings these adventures to life with language that is colloquial and easy to read. Pep Monserrat breathes beautiful modern colors and style into his paintings, even as he reinvents images from classical antiquity. Together they've created a masterpiece of mythology, perfect for young readers.

Love this book! Might even prefer it to the wonderful "Treasury of Greek Mythology
Classic Stories of Gods, Goddesses, Heroes & Monsters" by Napoli, Donna Jo but it's a close one. We read it to the 6 & 8 year old at bed time and they are enthused. Both the story and the art make this a great Greek mythology book for the kidos. We chew through it over the course of a week or two. Will certainly purchase a copy for home. Highly recommend it!
