Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 2–5—A brilliant practitioner of the eponymous poetic form conveys both the drama and pathos of myths that have entertained throughout the ages, while establishing that there are two sides to every story. Full-page artwork, bathed in dazzling blue and gold tones, sets the stage for these timeless tales of gods and mortals told with a poignant and commanding lyricism. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous book--lots of fun
By Robert Ramirez on May 13, 2020
My kids so enjoyed reading this book during our Poetry Tea Time. My almost 7 year old was super into it! The pictures are gorgeous. And I love that a snippet of information is given about the myths with each poem. It goes great with our study of ancient history. Really a great buy!
