Description

A gorgeous introduction to some of the most exciting stories every written: Greek myths.

Prideful Arachne, turned into a spider by a jealous god. King Midas, given the golden touch. Hermes, the god who flies with winged sandals. This spellbinding anthology features some of the most gripping tales from Greek mythology, including Prometheus stealing fire from the gods and curious Pandora opening a forbidden box--only to unleash misery on all humanity. These retellings will enchant young readers and instill in them a love for storytelling.


Four different illustrators--Patrick Brooks, Oscar Galvan, Ivana G. Kuman, and Alida Massari--bring their distinctive styles to the myths.


An illustrated collection of twenty Greek myths including "Prometheus and Pandora," "Theseus and the Minotaur," "Meleager and the blazing log," and "The story of Phaeton."
