Welcome to the mesmerizing world of powerful gods, terrifying monsters, and courageous heroes! This action-packed guide to Ancient Greek mythology is filled with profiles of the most amazing characters, as well as brilliant images, fascinating facts, and riveting storytelling. Lavish CGI artworks recreate the most dramatic scenes from famous Greek myths, while incredible artifacts from the ancient Greek period are taken out from "behind the glass". Young readers will feel as though they are being whisked back to Mount Olympus itself, while the artifacts offer historical context to the mythology. Gods, Heroes, and Monsters takes readers on a tour of discovery in which the legendary creatures, epic battles, and heroic deeds of Greek mythology come alive. It's the perfect way to introduce (or rediscover) all the stories of the gods of Olympus, the Odyssey, the Trojan Wars, and the adventures of heroes such as Perseus and Heracles. From fates and furies to the Minotaur and Medusa, this book will stir every imagination.

Editorial Reviews

"Readers often skip over the introduction in books, but this book has a short introduction that will draw young readers in and hold their attention as they learn about the ancient myths of Greece. The rest of the book is filled with wonderful short versions of the tales of ancient Greece along with illustrations, photographs, artwork, and wonderful graphics to accompany these writings. In addition to the tales, most of the major figures -- gods, demigods, nymphs, muses, creatures, and monsters -- that populate Greek mythology are well described on the pages containing the tales in which they're involved. The curious relationships among the gods and others are neatly explained. The writing is clear and concise, filled with delicious details and wonderful descriptions. Each piece is something that will fascinate young readers (and a lot of older ones as well) and give them a good foundation in the rich culture of ancient Greece. This collection will very likely send readers off in search of more information and longer versions of these classic stories. This book is a winner."—Manhattan Book Review
