    Only taking the star off because I have the sneaking suspicion that dear Ms Coolidge smoothed over an incident or two for the sake of her 1940s grade school audience ’D

    Throughout your years in school no matter the grade references to Greek Mythology are always made If you are like me and you enjoyed learning about the myths than Greek Myths by Olivia Coolidge is the book for you This book has short stories of all the popular gods and the minor gods you may have never known existed This book is great for the type of reader who cannot get involved in a long drawn book Since the book has many stories it is easy to pick up and put down without forgetting what has happened in previous chapters Coolidge writes the book for all ages The content is easy enough for the younger audience to comprehend and a great refresher for the older audience She formats it so you can look up the god you would like to read about and then you can find stories of the godgoddess The sections themselves are easy to read which keeps you interested and wanting You are going to be constantly interested if you choose this book My favorite story was the story of Hercules This section goes into great depth of the life of Hercules Starting off with his life as a young child all the way to his death In order to find out how he died you will have to read the story yourself The book covers all gods from Zeus and Poseidon all the way to Hermes Each god has at least one story of the adventures in their life One problem is the sections leave out some information leaving you with many uestions Although there is that small problem it is still an excellent book that I would recommend to anyone who likes Greek Mythology and wants to refresh their memory

    The child in me loved the illustrations that were peppered throughout this book and the adult in me loved the complex stories emotions struggles and ideas that are collected here I adore Greek mythology and this book had several stories I had already read but also many new ones This is a YAF book so the language is simple and easy to understand and read I liked the book and would recommend it to my fellow Greek myth dorks

    It was a good read This author is a great story teller so you will like it even if your not into Greek mythology She makes the myths better even after I have read them a few times over Very easy going and the only bad thing was that it didn't have all of the myths I had to read this for school and it has been one of the best books

    I liked the way this book was written It was a good fast read that kept the stories interesting There are lots of the familiar myths covered ie Theseus Hercules Midas and the like plus a few that I don't remember having read about before ie Phaethon Arachne and Tithonus

    Who was the author of the book?What genre was the book?Who were the main characters in the book?hermes apollo basically a lot of greek godsWhat was the main conflict in the book?the main conflict in one of the stories is that Hermes stole Apollo sheeps Give a brief summary of the book you completed Be sure to include the beginning climax and resolution from the book if applicable What was the title of the book?so the story starts off telling us how Hermes was hidden from other gods because they would have killed him Hermes is the god of thieves by the time he was a baby he could walk and talk one day he stole Apollo his brother sheep and killed two of them Appollo was mad and wanted to kill Hermes but Hermes gave his musical instrument to Apollo and Apollo spared his life and from that day Hermes never stole from apollo again

    This book was written in 1949 so yeah Not great It's that genre of Greek Mythology where all the story details have been expanded on enough to create coherent stories told in a fairy tale type tone but with absolutely NO added character development It was also somewhat moralizing and forced all the characters into a nuclear family model ie all the s had husbands in a different country lol The only story I really liked was Theseus telling his mom he was going to walk to Athens by himself because I think that really captured how that boy is a superhero and also as smart as a nub

    I have been looking for a detailed book of Greek mythology and this is one It would have gotten five stars but some of the details are different than the stories I remember reading as a child such as the story of Echo who pines after Narcissus and the story of Heracles the son of Zeus in this book he is not???? I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Greek mythology but who are not sticklers for the classic tellings of the stories
