Tales of the Greek Heroes weaves together stories of ancient Greek heroes from the beginning to Troy. The stories are similar to any other retelling, but the book manages to make them more of a cohesive unit with one story relating to and leading to the next. These retellings are excellent and I highly recommend reading them to people of all ages!

Love, love, love this book! I find that some Greek mythology stories are too watered down for kids. These of course have been watered down but not too much. I also love the way the book looks. It has a very nice cover.
MisterMax
Great contrast for comparison studies on the different Greek tales. This was bought as a companion for several other books purchased on mythology. I used it for my children's mythology and legends course study. The kids never balked at their reading assignment and they enjoyed the multitude of information that it covered.
Yozshujinn
Great book for kids that want to learn about myths. Stories are well organized and easy to read.

10 yr old boy loves this book.

Having visited Greece and not being able to fully take in the mythology side of their history, I decided to buy this book. I found it easy to read, and though I still don't have all the Greek gods & goddesses names down pat, I have a much better knowledge of who is whom and what they did. Definitely one for those that want to get into mythology.

...told in story form. Almost biblical in language, and that makes it kind of fun. Great background if you're reading Rick Riordan's Greek/Roman books; almost a must-read for that, since he, himself recommends and wrote the forward for this book, which he read growing up and used as the starting point for his mythological accuracy. And yes, kids who are reading about Percy and Jason can understand this book including Perseus and Jason very easily.
