I must tell the truth, I did not read all of the text. I am in love with this book for the illustrations. They are phenomenal. I almost didn't pick this up at the library sale. I saw Golden Book and I thought of those horrid little things people collect. But this is truly Golden. I will have to look into the work of Alice and Martin Provensen, the illustrators. ( )

From Goodreads:
Wonderful late-50s illustrations and classic stories such as Heracles, Beowulf, Tristram & Iseult, and Sigurd of the Volsungs.

For the most part I enjoyed the stories in this collection, but the writing is simplistic which I guess makes sense since Golden Books are known for their children’s books. Some of the stories I’d heard before though it’s been quite awhile, so the refresher was nice. The rest I’d never heard and found interesting, but not enthralling. Always nice to learn new legends though. I was not at all impressed with the artwork. It’s weird looking and the colors are very blah. It’s just not my thing. ( )
