Description
From Hercules? snake assassin slippers to Arachne's wicked weaver rap songs, these are the mythic monsters and Hellenic heroes that have captured Western culture for centuries?but a whole lot more fun. Each story showcases the wondrous and blunderful antics of gods and mortals in bright graphics that rival the super-heroic action of "The Lightning Thief," burst with the knock-yoursocks- off humor of Jeff Kinney, and still remain unerringly faithful to the original myth. Kids won't be able to resist the bickering sheep, unruly rulers, and undercover details of "Amazing Greek Myths"?while teachers, librarians, and parents can relish this new way to share moral messages that remain as relevant today as they were a thousand years ago.
