Amazing Greek Myths of Wonder and Blunders

by

Amazing Greek Myths of Wonder and Blunders Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Hercules? snake assassin slippers to Arachne?s wicked weaver rap songs, these are the mythic monsters and Hellenic heroes that have captured Western culture for centuries?but a whole lot more fun. Each story showcases the wondrous and blunderful antics of gods and mortals in bright graphics that rival the super-heroic action of The Lightning Thief, burst with the knock-yoursocks- off humor of Jeff Kinney, and still remain unerringly faithful to the original myth. Kids won?t be able to resist the bickering sheep, unruly rulers, and undercover details of Amazing Greek Myths?while teachers, librarians, and parents can relish this new way to share moral messages that remain as relevant today as they were a thousand years ago.

Review:

"Hellenic heroes and mythic monsters from Greek mythology go to a whole new level with Townsend's cartoony, bright, and colorful art. This collection of whimsically told Greek myths include comical abridged stories about King Midas, Pandora, Pygmalion, Persephone, Arachne, Perseus, Pyramus and Thisbe, Icarus, and Hercules. A brief introduction informs readers on the 'first things they should know about the world of Greek Mythology' complete with a show and tell of the gods' and monsters' character names and faces. The entertaining, lively, and action-packed stories are spiced with slapstick throughout, while the moral messages are contained within loud, flamboyant action, leaving readers with plenty of room for laughs. Ages 9 — 12." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:
