I thought this book was very interesting. It told you a lot about what the Greeks used to believe. It tells you about the
Greek Gods, and even the smaller Greek myths! All in all, I recommend this book. I really think you will like it!

The Greek Myth-Perseus and Medusa has a valuable lesson. The lesson captured me and it is saying that when you are evil no one remembers something good about you and there has to be a hero that will come along eventually to end the bad deeds. But while being good everyone remembers you.

I've been reading this book since I was very young; and it never ceases to amaze me. I love the illustrations, and it was the first book to bring me into the world of Greek myths.

For kids, if you want a shorter version, D'Aulaire's Book of Greek Myths is the pick. If you do not mind a slightly longer version, The Usborne Book of Greek Myths is a lot better.
