About this deal

Though some of the stories are a little hard to follow, and shortened so much that the long names make up a large proportion of the overall letter count, my 7-year-old really likes this comic book version of some of the most famous Greek myths.

This book would appeal to young readers because the myths are retold using simple words for children to understand and the illustrations are very engaging and entertaining. The stories include ‘Orpheus and Eurydice’, ‘Theseus and the Minotaur’, ‘Perseus and the Gorgon’s Head’.

Item despatched quickly and as described, but damaged in transit due to plastic wrap packaging being inadequate protection.

This would also be a good to introduce the topic of The Greeks so that the children would become a little more aware and interested. While the stories are brief, they tend to stick to the major details of the original myths, the basic plot lines are there and the important themes are kept in play. Theseus wanted to kill the hairy Minotaur because a lot of weak tributes from Athens got sent each year and it wasn’t fair. Every year King Minos would tell King Agues to send 7 boys and 7 girls to Crete to be killed by the Minotaur.Marcia Williams is known for her adaptation of classic stories into a graphic novel style books for younger readers. The only thing adults should keep in mind when introducing this book to children is there is violence in some of the myths. Williams takes classic myths and presents them in a comic strip format with humor and language that students can understand.

In this book, you'll find the stories of Theseus, conqueror of the dreaded Minotaur; the mighty Heracles and his twelve tasks; the tragic lovers Orpheus and Eurydice; Perseus, the Gorgon-slayer; the musician Arion and his rescue by the dolphins; Pandora and her little box of horrors; the feather-clad fliers Daedalus and Icarus; and the weaving contest between Arachne and the goddess Athene.All used books might have various degrees of writing, highliting and wear and tear and possibly be an ex-library with the usual stickers and stamps. I also bought the Romans book at the same time but feel that that one is more suited to a slightly older reader of say 7-8 minimum due to the more factual nature, whereas this one could be enjoyed by readers as young as 5 as it is made up of a series of short stories. Williams depicts the tales of Theseus and the Minotaur, Daedalus and Icarus, and six other classics from Ancient Greece.

I loved that it included the story of Arion the Dolphin Man in edition to some of the more normal Greek Myths. Curriculum Connection: I would offer this book to the class after the basics of Greek mythology were addressed. Panels and spreads brimming with color and nonstop action make each tale a pleasure to look at and voice balloons add modern humor. The Greek myths are among the greatest, most exciting stories ever told and feature some of the world's best loved heroes and heroines.
