Abstract:

Introduces children to the gods, people, and beliefs of ancient Greek myths.

Here are the gods, goddesses, and legendary figures of ancient Greece -- mighty Zeus, with his fistful of thunderbolts; gray-eyed Athena, goddess of wisdom; Helios, the sun; greedy King Midas -- depicted by Caldecott winners Ingri and Edgar Parin d'Aulaire. These artists bring to life the myths that have inspired great European literature and art through the ages.
