If you are under 16, please obtain your parent/guardian’s permission before submitting or ask your parent/guardian to submit on your behalf. This is a great resource in the classroom for children to start to understand a topic they may be covering. The violence is there though only shown with a drip of blood here and there and obviously dead bodies; this may be an issue with some parents. I also bought the Romans book at the same time but feel that that one is more suited to a slightly older reader of say 7-8 minimum due to the more factual nature, whereas this one could be enjoyed by readers as young as 5 as it is made up of a series of short stories. In this book, you’ll find the stories of Theseus, conqueror of the dreaded Minotaur; the mighty Heracles and his twelve tasks; the tragic lovers Orpheus and Eurydice; Perseus, the Gorgon-slayer; the musician Arion and his rescue by the dolphins; Pandora and her little box of horrors; the feather-clad fliers Daedalus and Icarus; and the weaving contest between Arachne and the goddess Athene.

Marcia Williams began to develop her distinctive comic-book style at an early age: "When I was about ten and wrote home to my family from boarding school," she says, "I never wrote normal letters. Tell us why you liked or disliked the book; using examples and comparisons is a great way to do this.In addition to reading other versions of these stories, it would also be possible to use this book as a starting point for exploring other graphic books. Another classic she has made much more accessible to children--and more appreciated by them--is THE ILIAD AND THE ODYSSEY. While the stories are brief, they tend to stick to the major details of the original myths, the basic plot lines are there and the important themes are kept in play. In this book, you'll find the stories of Theseus, conqueror of the dreaded Minotaur; the mighty Heracles and his twelve tasks; the tragic lovers Orpheus and Eurydice; Perseus, the Gorgon-slayer; the musician Arion and his rescue by the dolphins; Pandora and her little box of horrors; the feather-clad fliers Daedalus and Icarus; and the weaving contest between Arachne and the goddess Athene. Panels and spreads brimming with color, decorative detail, and nonstop action make each tale a pleasure to look at, and speech bubbles add modern humor.

If I could make these stories more accessible, I realized, kids wouldn't have to wait until they were grown-up to appreciate them. This would also benefit the children as they could also spend a lesson in making their own storyboard/comic strip of retelling a Greek Myth.We are experiencing delays with deliveries to many countries, but in most cases local services have now resumed. Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. Many teachers have found this comic strip approach to Greek mythology has stimulated children’s own writing and led to further exploration of these important stories. I felt that I had seen all the same things before, I wish she would have done something that was more eye catching.
