Product Details

Praise

This irreverently funny book is just right for children 9 and up who shy away from anything that smacks of schoolwork and can be a bridge to territory they might otherwise never visit.
—Los Angeles Times

Williams’s approach is to be faithful in fact and setting, but modern in humor and attitude. The retellings are quite accurate . . . but above all they are witty and fast-paced . . . It’s a triumph of layout . . . Even reluctant readers (let alone closet classicists) will be drawn to pore over these entrancing pages.
—School Library Journal

Will persuade a broad range of kids to become culturally literate . . . The cleverly cartooned characters and the ballooned remarks add an irreverent zest . . . Good drawing . . . and time-tested stories raise this several cuts above modern superheroes.
—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, recommended review
