Walk among the gods and goddesses, men and monsters, in this enchanting volume of classic Greek myths!

Vibrant art adds a fresh twist to this collection, giving today's readers their own version of these timeless tales.

Eric A. Kimmel brings these adventures to life with language that is colloquial and easy to read.
