I liked that there is a guide to pronouncing the Greek names (as found in the book)at the end. The stories are adapted with a younger target audience in mind so details found in the actual full-length myths, such as the minotaur's origins are not explored here (which is a relief!). The reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is because I felt the book lacked sufficient illustrations. The illustrations are quite simple, not exquisitely detailed as found in some other books on myths, but they are colorful and beautiful. I just felt that there should have been more of them given that this is targeted towards children. Suitable for Grades K-5.
