A classic gift book for ages 7 and up, this rich collection -- illustrated in full-color by Gareth Hinds and retold by professional storyteller Lise Lunge-Larsen -- shows how the ancient myths from Greece rang so true and wise that the names of the characters have survived as words we now use every day. (A few examples are genius, tantalize, panic, muse, nemesis, fury, victory. No mythology has given English as many words as the Greek and Roman myths.) Not only imparting the subtle wisdom of these ancient tales, this slim book makes us understand the words more deeply.
