Here are myths from Greeks and Romans,
With chimeras, curses, omens,
Strange seductions, gold abounding,
Transformations most astounding,
Sorceresses, swans, and mazes,
Goddesses with lethal gazes,
Flying horses-goodness gracious!
Snaky heads and bulls salacious,
Minotaurs and monsters strangled,
Passions kinkily entangled--
All herein--A Gift From Zeus
(which, by the way can cook your goose).
“This book marries two immortals: Steigan art and classical myth.”
-School Library Journal
“The book is delightful.”
-The New York Times Book Review
“Kudos to the Steigs.”
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)
