I didn't care for the narration style where the author was continually in the story. It was also highly fictionalized in a modern style. I am more interested in how the ancient greeks understood their gods.

This book is a huge and fascinating resource. I read it cover-to-cover, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Meticulously illustrated, this fusion of picture book and expansive textbook goes into depth about every aspect of the steps to get to the moon.
