Publisher's Summary

Enter a world where anything is possible. A god could be a mountain or a shower of gold. A nymph could be a stream or an echo in the wind. The myths of ancient Greece are full of such wonders, as well as a host of courageous heroes, cunning heroines, and terrible monsters. From the tragedy of Persephone to the fearsome minotaur; from Perseus's quest for Medusa to greedy King Midas, this collection includes a broad range of the most well-known and celebrated myths. Each is skillfully retold by Ann Turnbull, and readers young and old are welcomed into a golden world of beauty, tragedy, and miracle.

Great Book. Ended Too Soon

I have always love Greek Mythology. And I can't help but revel in how frequently these stories of long ago turn up in our modern everyday life.

I really enjoyed the author, Ann Turnbull's gift of story telling, and Michael Page is one of the best narrators out there.

I would recommend this book to Everyone.
My only complaint would be that I wish it was a little longer, I was left wanting more. SMILE

Excellent

This is an excellent introduction to some of the most famous Greek myths. It's beautifully written, and the reader conveys it well.
