I listen to these CD's in my car on the way to work and school, it is the first audio book I have ever listen to and feel with this type of literature it is a great way to ignite the imagination, and story build with. The cover was beautifully illustrated and that is what made me pick it up, I was not disappointed as I have read some of these stories and to just listen and let my imagination run wild was magical.

The anthologies by these authors are classics. Fairly comprehensive mythology (not embellished, pretty reference-y) accompanied by distinctive full-page illustrations.

This book was a collection of the Greek Myths. Centered around Greek heroes such as Achilles, Hercules, Theseus, Perseus and more, this book is full of exciting tales for children ages 8-12.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0440406943, Paperback)

No education is complete without a large slice of Greek mythology. And there's no better way of meeting that literary quota than with the D'Aulaires' book. All the great gods and goddesses of ancient Greece are depicted in this big, beautiful classic, lovingly illustrated and skillfully told. Young readers will be dazzled by mighty Zeus, lord of the universe; stirred by elegant Athena, goddess of wisdom; intimidated by powerful Hera, queen of Olympus; and chilled by moody Poseidon, ruler of the sea. These often impetuous immortals flounce and frolic, get indiscreet, and get even. From petty squabbles to heroic deeds, their actions cover the range of godly--and mortal--personalities.

The D'Aulaires' illustrations have a memorable quality: once pored over, they will never leave the minds of the viewer. Decades later, the name Gaea will still evoke the soft green picture of lovely Mother Earth, her body hills and valleys and her eyes blue lakes reflecting the stars of her husband, Uranus the sky. No child is too young to appreciate the myths that have built the foundation for much of the world's art and literature over the centuries. This introduction to mythology is a treasure. (Ages 10 to adult) --Emilie Coulter
