The colorful characters from Greek mythology come alive in exciting adventures captured by the author of The House of the Seven Gables and The Scarlet Letter. Ride Pegasus, open Pandora' Box, kill Medea with her head of many snakes, join Hercules as he flexes his muscles and King Midas as he turn his daughter into gold. The stories, moral in tone, are totally riveting.

3. The Paradise of Children

4. The Three Golden Apples

5. The Miraculous Pitcher

6. The Chimæra

Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804 1864) is considered to be one of the greatest American authors of the nineteenth century. Born in Salem, Massachusetts, he used Puritan New England as a setting for many of his short stories, allegorical tales, and novels. The Scarlet Letter, Hawthorne's masterpiece, has never been out of print since it was first published in 1850.

    " Hawthorne does a great job of retelling six tales from Greek mythology. My children and I enjoyed reading it together, and it gave them an itroduction to mythology. My daughter is standing here with me right now, and she wants you to know that she really liked it. "

    " Hard to believe this was written 160 years ago, by the author of The Scarlet Letter to boot. Very entertaining breezy style. This edition has great illustrations. "

    " The children and I enjoyed this on our camping trip. It was probably more of a blessing to his generation than ours, but still well told and worth reading. He weaves some allegories of his own into the Greek myths, and adds a few thoughtful insights. "
