The gold standard in Greek mythology, in a dazzling Graphic Deluxe Edition with a new introduction by the bestselling author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok This is an ok anthology of Greek Myths, but Grave's idiosyncratic interpretation of the myths often get int he way of the stories; Edith Hamilton's collection is more enjoyable. This book is for Grave's scholars.
