About Heroes, Gods and Monsters of the Greek Myths
For fans of D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths and readers who enjoyed Homer’s The Iliad and The Odyssey comes a collection by a master storyteller that evokes the golden age of mythical Greece. The earth breeds giants and ogres of indescribable horror–the heavens hold omnipotent gods and goddesses, abounding in courage, strength and wisdom. Zeus, the almighty king of the gods, who cannot resist feminine beauty — mortal or divine, and his jealous and vengeful wife, Hera. Perseus, fearless mortal warrior, who takes on an impossible challenge: slaying the monstrous Medusa, whose glance turns men to stone. The Minotaur, half-man and half-bull, the horrible fruit of a queen’s unspeakable desire, who annually destroys the young victims sacrificed to his terrifying power. A fantastic world of spells and curses, magic and mystery, forces that create and destroy at will.
