"Even reluctant readers (let alone closet classicists) will be drawn to pore over these entrancing pages. -- School Library Journal

Greek myths are among the most exciting stories ever told. In this collection, Marcia Williams offers a fun but faithful retelling of eight myths using simple language and her signature comic-strip format. 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. This indispensable collection is the perfect way to introduce young readers to the power of myth.

Review:

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
