6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Triplet Mom on June 9, 2006
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My almost-[...] boys love to pore over the illustrations in this book and seem never to tire of it -- often bringing it along in the car with them. They love to hear the stories and giggle over the often humorous way they are portrayed. It is in comic book format, and though it often abbreviates the story, gets the children interested in and familiar with the Greek Myths. The reading level is still a bit beyond my boys' at first grade. This book was such a great one that I have also purchased Williams' books on Robin Hood and Shakespeare among others.

By Kaui on November 16, 2010
Format: Paperback
Marcia Williams' series is a wonderful way to introduce erudite topics to a young child. I have an 8 year old boy who is an avid reader, and is currently completely enthralled with the Percy Jackson series. With all of the Greek and Roman mythology, my child has devoured this book as well as Marcia William's Illiad/Odyssey. The illustrations are tasteful, accurate and pleasing to the eye. The summaries strike just the right balance of being readable and accurate. I highly recommend this series to anyone wanting to push the horizons of their little ones (or even themselves). She does books on Beowulf, Shakespeare and other highly regarded classics.
