Publisher's Description

In print for over fifty years, D'Aulaires Book of Greek Myths has introduced generations to Greek mythology—and continues to enthrall young readers.

Here are the greats of ancient Greece—gods and goddesses, heroes and monsters—as freshly described in words and pictures as if they were alive today:
• Powerful Zeus, king of the gods, with his fistful of thunderbolts
• Hermes, mischievous trickster and messenger of the gods
• Gray-eyed Athena, goddess of wisdom and battle strategy
• The monstrous Minotaur, slain by brave Theseus
• Snake-haired Medusa the gorgon, turning enemies to stone with her steely stare
• Hercules the mightiest, part mortal, part god

These and other equally magnificent figures parade across the pages, their heroic deeds and petty squabbles illuminated in full dimension. 

No other volume of Greek mythology has inspired as many young readers as this timeless classic. Both adults and children alike will find this book a treasure for years to come. 

"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

"The drawings . . . are excellent and excitingly evocative."—The New York Times

Author Bio

Ingri Mortenson and Edgar Parin d’Aulaire met in Munich, where both were studying art. Ingri had grown up in Norway; Edgar, the son of a noted Italian portrait painter, was born in Switzerland and had lived in Paris and Florence. Shortly after their marriage, they moved to the United States and began to create the picture books that established their reputation as two of the twentieth century’s most important children’s writers and illustrators. They won the Caldecott Medal in 1940 for Abraham Lincoln

During an extended trip to Greece, they studied and sketched the countryside, the people, and the architecture and artifacts of long ago. The result was D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths, the standard-bearer of mythology for children since its publication in 1962.

    A beautifully illustrated book! The content of the book is excellent for kids (& adults), and draws you into the story of the Greek myths immediately. An excellent resource to add to your library for the study of ancient history.

    This is a wonderful book. Twice a week I read one of the myths to my son, he loves them. This is great addition to any course focusing on the history or culture of ancient Greece. It is also a good way to simply broaden a childs knowledge base and interest in history and/or literature. The myths presented are done in a tasteful manner, however, I would recommend that parents review them first. I consider the material appropriate for fourth grade and up.
