About this deal

Curriculum Connection: I would offer this book to the class after the basics of Greek mythology were addressed. The illustrations and dialogue within the illustrations was funny and definitely made it more interesting to me.

It was this book that planted the seed that would eventually sprout and blossom into my ongoing love for Ancient Grecian mythology—additionally probably my earliest memory of being made aware in print that sometimes really shit things happen to unassuming people for almost no reason whatsoever, and that there's almost nothing you can do to fight it, à la Olympus style. The stories have been summarised and written in language which is simple and more accessible for children. This book is a collection of some of the most famous and classic greek myths including "Pandora's Box," "Arion and the Dolphins," "Orpheus and Eurydice," "The Twelve Tasks of Hercules," Daedalus and Icarus," "Perseus and the Gorgon's Head," "Theseus and the Minotaure," and "Arachne Versus Athena.This would also be a good to introduce the topic of The Greeks so that the children would become a little more aware and interested.

In this book, you'll find the stories of Theseus, conqueror of the dreaded Minotaur; the mighty Heracles and his twelve tasks; the tragic lovers Orpheus and Eurydice; Perseus, the Gorgon-slayer; the musician Arion and his rescue by the dolphins; Pandora and her little box of horrors; the feather-clad fliers Daedalus and Icarus; and the weaving contest between Arachne and the goddess Athene. The others are very popular: Pandora, Orpheus/Eurydice, Heracles 12 Tasks, Daedalus/Icarus, Medusa, the Minotaur and finally the story of Arachne.All used books might have various degrees of writing, highliting and wear and tear and possibly be an ex-library with the usual stickers and stamps.
