Here you will find the greats of ancient Greece. Gods and Goddesses, heroes and monsters as freshly described in words and pictures as if they were alive today.
A timeless classic for over fifty years, D’Aulaires Book of Greek Myths has introduced generations to Greek mythology—and continues to enthrall young readers.
“I doubt I would have grown up to be the writer and artist I became had I not fallen in love with D’Aulaire’s Book of Greek Myths at the age of seven.”—R. J. Palacio, author of Wonder.
“For any child fortunate enough to have this generous book . . . the kings and heroes of ancient legend will remain forever matter-of-fact; the pictures interpret the text literally and are full of detail and witty observation.”—The Horn Book
