Strange seductions, gold abounding,
Transformations most astounding,
Sorceresses, swans, and mazes,
Goddesses with lethal gazes,
Flying horses-goodness gracious!
Snaky heads and bulls salacious,
Minotaurs and monsters strangled,
Passions kinkily entangled--
All herein--A Gift From Zeus

Featuring gods and goddesses, flying horses, Minotaurs, and monsters, this rhyming saga is designed to be a humorous introduction to mythology for young readers. Full color.
