Presents retellings of stories about Greek gods and goddesses. Here are fifteen wonderful stories about the Greek gods and goddesses--Zeus, the most powerful, his wife, Hera and their large, extended family.

The collection includes favorite stories such as how Paris judged who was the fairest goddess of all, how the city of Athens was named, and how Phaeton defied his father, the sungod Helios. It also tells some of the lesser-known ones: how the dolphins were created and how Hephaestus won Aphrodite for his wife. The magic and drama of Geraldine McCaughrean's retellings are beautifully matched by Emma Chichester Clark's lively illustrations, in which she brings the characters strikingly to life
