Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Harper Kingsley | 1/17/2014

    " The stories were heavily edited for a child audience, but I still gave it a 4-star rating because of the beautiful illustrations. There's just something about the artwork that really appeals to me and it was a plus that there are nearly as many pictures as there are pages of text. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 1/16/2014

    " This may be my favorite children's treasury of Greek Mythology to date. It has really cool illustrations, the stories are told in an interesting manor and are easy to understand, and at the back it even has a guide to the stars and constellations. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 1/15/2014

    " Absolutely beautiful, one of my favorite illustrated Greek mythology books, think I might have to buy it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth Cronk | 12/26/2013

    " Well researched & documented. My children were fascinated by it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alanna | 12/21/2013

    " The only thing that saves this from getting only one star is the fabulous illustrations. The text is terrible, poorly researched, biased and down right infuriating. What a waste of such wonderful illustrations! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kevin | 12/18/2013

    " Gorgeous illustrations and very accessible introduction to mythology but the stories seem to lose a little of their edge and depth in this style. Not being an educator, I am not sure what age kids this is best suited for but I have a feeling it is a good place to start for younger readers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly | 12/14/2013

    " Very informative. I love Greek mythology!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew Henahan | 12/8/2013

    " This is a wonderful book of Greek mythology to begin with. The illustrations are beautiful and the stories are told in a way that everyone whether young or old can understand. A wonderful addition to anyone's book shelf. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Valerie Stonesifer | 10/21/2013

    " The illustrations in this book are amazing but it reads more like an encyclopedia than a collection of stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Handd51 | 8/14/2013

    " Fabulous - this is fabulous. The writing is outstanding and the illustrations outstanding. This is a new classic "journey" a little down the page - amazing that it slipped thru in a book of such otherwise obvious quality. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bart Everson | 6/8/2013

    " Five stars for the illustrations, three for the stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie Eaton | 5/10/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Aliyah | 3/3/2013

    " I didn't like the pictures very much, and the stories where completely different from what i have learned from other books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 1 Ryan | 2/28/2013

    " It was a good book but they could've included more details on other people's lives. Aside from that it was good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melody | 2/5/2013

    " I enjoy Greek mythology so I wanted to check this out when I heard of it. I enjoyed the artwork and stories, read the whole thing in about two days. The stories got a bit confusing at times because there are so many names to keep track of, I wish there was a better family tree or chart. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nov13670 Nov13670 | 2/4/2013

    " Love the myths. Good to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Laramore | 1/24/2013

    " My son loves the wonder, the majesty, the heroes! I love reading these stories to him at bedtime! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trever | 12/15/2012

    " Wonderful illustrations, but the storytelling is terribly gender biased, I mean even for Greek (read: patriarchal) mythology the author does a terrible job. "
