An attractive, simple introduction on the topic. I like this book and I might even love it if I'd never encountered D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths. I think every single household with children should own a copy of D'Aulaires'. I grew up with it and now read it with my own daughter so I'm a bit biased. But I really believe D'Aulaires' is superior in almost every way - aesthetically, textually, etc. That's not to say this book has no value. For starters, I really like the section on Gaea, Uranus and the Titans and how it reads almost like a little comic strip - very engaging! I think this book is a good choice for parents who feel their kids aren't quite ready (mainly due to attention span) for D'Aulaires'. The little bios on each god are decent and the accompanying abundant illustrations are bright and appealing.
