Seeking book on Greek mythology. a Name that Book (març 2017)

Ressenyes

This book is most appropriate for children in middle school. It is a great way to introduce students to the gods/goddesses and their journeys. In the book there is a glossary to help students navigate certain terms that may be difficult.

This was entertaining, but not at all scholarly. Evslin's retellings are pretty free and seem like the inspiration for some movies I've seen. He has a strong visual imagination. For example, the story of Atlanta compelled me to think of the movie Princess Mononoke, while the ball of string in the story of Theseus behaved just like those magic spheres that Jareth was always using in Labyrinth.

“Whoever takes me captive won't live long enough to enjoy it”
― Bernard Evslin, Heroes, Gods and Monsters of the Greek Myths

If you are seeking stories of Greek Mythology, might I suggest this wonderful little book?!

It is a gem. And it is packed full of adventure, fierceness and fun. It will take you through all the Gods....their stories, their individual sagas and adventures. It is a timeless read that I adore.

This is not a complicated book. And if you know nothing of Greek Mythology or do and just want to know more, it makes a great book to read.

They are all in here. And there are so many stories all brimming with excitement and fun. I first read this as a child but periodically read it again, purely for how much fun it is. It never loses its appeal.

It's short as well so you don't get bogged down. But this does not read as a text book which it is not. And the writing is not dry at all.

These are all short stories, all in one book and each story deals with a different adventure. The book starts where the reader is introduced to each individual God and and each individual Goddess and then goes on from there.

Highly recommended if one has an interest in Mythology.
