Staff Pick

I wish this book had been published about 25 years sooner! Decorated with little envelopes containing cards, notes, and pop-up scenes, Mythology is a perfect primer for getting fresh minds hooked on Greek mythology. Whether they're Percy Jackson fans, love a great tale, or just want a classroom tutorial that isn't bone-dry and academic, young readers will be drawn into the beautifully designed package of this phenomenal book.

Publisher Comments:

Presenting the newest discovery in the series with the Midas touch — a mythical exploration fit for the gods.

In the early nineteenth century, an English nobleman embarked on a tour of the sites of ancient Greece. He brought as his guide a primer on Greek myths written by his friend Lady Hestia Evans, a devotee of Lord Byron who had recently taken the same voyage. In the true Romantic spirit, Lady Hestia's book was not only lavishly illustrated but also boasted many paper crafts and novelties, including a card game featuring the twelve Olympians, an oak-leaf oracle of Zeus, a pop-up Pandora's box (with hope still inside), a booklet retelling the tale of Odysseus, a piece of the Golden Fleece, a gold OBOLOS coin to pay the ferryman on the River Styx, and many more flaps, foldouts, and other surprises. The nobleman added his own witty comments and drawings along the way, but seems to have wished for something odd at the Delphic oracle: as the book nears its end, it slowly begins to turn...to gold. Now, for lovers of Greek myths and those just discovering their timeless power, this fascinating volume is faithfully reproduced with all its Romantic ambience, clever wit and novelty features intact.

Review:

"Cleverly written, richly illustrated and replete with hands-on novelties, trivia booklets and pop-ups, this fanciful book provides the perfect introduction to the mesmerizing and timeless tales of Ancient Greece in an interactive and creative way that is perfect for readers of all ages." kidsread.com
