Great for good night stories!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. While it doesn't go into very much detail, the stories are well-written and entertaining. Each story is written so as to help keep things in some sort of chronological order.

keeps your attention

I found him so entertaining. The stories are simple and straight to the point without being childish. The only thing I would say is that these are the basic stories, so if you know the gist of most of these stories.

It was definitely an awesome version of explaining the Greek Gods, Goddesses, Heroes, and Monsters. But I did enjoy the stories if the ones they did go into.

A terrific book

The book offers rich insight as to how ancient civilizations interpreted the world around them. I recommend this book as a primer for parents wanting to impart to their children a crucial aspect of Western civilization, so much of which remains with us to this day.

Nice cover

This is an excellent source for beginners and students. If you are already versed in Greek mythology, you may find the lack of certain myths discouraging, but I do encourage you to revisit a wonderful telling of myths that probably got you interested in Greek mythology in the first place.
