    " I read this to my eight year old. The book does a great job of explaining the Greek myths to kids and adults, expanding on the more commonly known myths and really sealing the details on characters like Heracles. I look forward to reading more of his work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dayna Smith | 2/4/2014

    " A collection of ancient Greek myths retold in story fashion. Included are the stories of the labors of Hercules and Jason and the Argonauts in their search for the Golden Fleece among others. A great introduction to Greek mythology. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan Glover | 2/3/2014

    " Like his Tales of Ancient Egypt, these are really good versions of the myths of ancient Greece. We read these aloud with our children and they loved each one. They are short enough to be bedtime stories (10-12 pages each). "

    " This re-issued book of stories about the Greek heroes focuses on some of the gods but mainly narrates the adventures of the mortal heroes, especially Heracles. The author tells numerous stories, dividing the narrative into separate chapters based on the story being focused on, and does an excellent job bringing all the tales together by starting at the beginning with the rise of the gods and continuing through the tale of how Heracles saves them. Though the writing is stiff at times and many of the minor characters are difficult to keep track of, the book does a good job introducing some of the more well-known tales from ancient Greece. I wish the action in the book had felt a bit more exciting, but for an introduction to tales from Greek mythology about the heroes, this serves its purpose. "

    " There's quite a lot about Heracles! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ai | 12/27/2013

    " Great little intro to the world of mythology, but definitely aimed at a younger audience. "

    " Roger Lancelyn Green is a really good author, and his interpretation of the Greek myths are awesome. Not much more that needs to be said. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dayla | 11/25/2013

    " I loved reading about the greek heroes! I know it says compact disc, but I couldn't find the book version on here... Nonetheless, I devoured this book, I just wish it had been more informative, instead of skimming over some of the battles and adventures that some of the heroes had. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chandrika | 7/31/2013

    " I love Greek Mythology and I loved this book. There was just so much information in this book, but it was like a story book at the same time. I loved it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edward | 6/11/2013

    " Excellent summary, easy to read and a good insight into stories which form the core of so many modern tales and novels. "

    " After having no mythology in school, I needed to learn myself and this was an easy foray into it. "

    " 40 pages of Moleskine notes and a bunch of fantastic curricular ideas, I'm still glad I'm done. Only so I can go read that blasted Malazan epic taunting me... S'like the Sirens have me... "
