Gods, Heroes and Monsters – Discover the Wonders of the Ancient Greek Myths

Reviewed by:

The Greek mythology section of an elementary library has traditionally seen a lot of attention from staff interested in teaching the genre and students interested in gods and monsters.  If you need to update a well-worn collection, this new brightly illustrated edition with large bold photographs and illustrations is a good addition.  The limited, readable text covers the most celebrated Greek gods, and other mythical creatures beginning with some background history and a map of Ancient Greece at the time, and has enough detail to engage a Grade 4-6 audience.  The Table of Contents, bold headings, subheadings, plus captioned photographs, illustrations and maps help students navigate and locate information easily.
