You'll learn new things on each page you read! On the sides of the pages there is a story about a greedy
treasure hunter. The book is big and easy to read with very nice illustrations. I've read the whole series and
I would place this one in the middle. It isn't as good as the dragon and wizardology books, but it's better
than the egypt and pirateology.
Robert, 10 years old.
Written in the form of a mystery, the book purports to be a facsimile of a book that was used by a certain John Oro to contact the Greek Gods for his own benefit, and which results in ill-fated consequences. Lavishly illustrated, the book begins with an introduction to mythology and contains short stories of well-known Greek myths such as the story of King Midas and his Golden Touch, an excellent antique-looking map of ancient Greece, together with a genealogical table of the gods, monsters, and heroes of ancient Greece.
This is followed by pages on the creation of the gods; monsters and mythical beasts (contains a little insert which depicts the various serpents, as well as a specimen of the Golden Fleece); the origins of mankind (a pop-up of Pandora's box is included here); Zeus and Hera (with an insert containing 'sacred' oak leaves that can be used as an oracle); Poseidon and the sea (with a really abbreviated version of The Odyssey); Hades and the underworld (with a replica of an ancient obol); Ares, Aphrodite, and Hephaestus (with a golden replica of a death mask imprint); Apollo, Hermes, and Dionysus (with knowledge cards of the Gods of Olympus); Athena, Artemis, and Hestia (has lovely illustrations of the three Goddesses); Heracles and the Greek Heroes (and large illustration of the Cretan Labyrinth); and, the Trojan Horse.Read more ›
