D'Aulaires Book of Greek Myths by Ingri Daulaire
D'Aulaires Book of Greek Myths

zappencorser, October 5, 2006

This is the best book!! This book is so good that I repeatedly checked it out from my elementary school library and read it over and over back in the 1970's. Later when I was older, I looked all over for it and tried to special order it through my college bookstore, but it was out of print. It was finally reprinted it and I've owned my own copy for years!

The stories are fascinating as always and the artwork is unbelievably gorgeous!! It is great for young and old alike. One caution: Though I read it myself starting in about 2nd grade, it may not be for very young children. I was bit surprised at re-reading the stories as an adult how full of violence the stories are. Fortunately, there are plenty of heroes and heroines who defeat the bad guys and monsters!
