Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Children's Book! I always loved this book when I was a child, so I bought it to read with my daughter. I still love this book, and she gets a lot of enjoyment out of it as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kids are genius' and this book aknowledges that. This book is incomprehensibly smart. This is so much more than an alphabet book...every page is filled with imagination, and room for kids to find out more than they can learn in any school english class. The many synonyms and references to greek myhtology make this book a trip for someone of any age to partake in. I found this book to be the best of it's kind, even though there is not another book that comes close to matching it's creativity. I recomend this book for everyone..and I hope they can see the beauty in it
