A fabulous book for anyone who wants to learn about Greek Mythology. Two Thumbs up!

Very fond childhood memories of this book. Wonderful illustrations, very well written. It would be nice if the stories were less sanitized, but if that were the case no publisher would have distributed it as a children's book in the first place, in our sexually repressed culture. Don't worry, most of the violence is included (Prometheus still gets his liver eaten by an eagle every 24 hours, for example)
Please check out the underappreciated D'Aulaires book on Norse mythology (as a child I thought this was way cooler than the Greek one - it's darker and bleaker) and the book on trolls as well. I personally think all these books deserve to be as ubiquitous as Dr. Seuss.

Had this book as a child. A nice trip to good memories.

I enjoyed this book as a child, and it still works well telling the stories of Greek gods and heroes.
