Publisher's Description

"I doubt I would have grown up to be the writer and artist I became had I not fallen in love with D’Aulaire’s Book of Greek Myths at the age of seven."—R. J. Palacio, author of Wonder.

Now updated with a new cover and an afterword featuring never-before-published drawings from the sketchbook of Ingri and Edgar D'Aulaire, plus an essay about their life and work and photos from the family achive.

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. 

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 D’AULAIRE and EDGAR PARIN D’AULAIRE first 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 1940 Caldecott Medal 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 review was written for D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths.
    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.
