9780028653761: MacMillan Profiles: Myths & Legends (1 Vol.)
From School Library Journal:

Gr 7 Up-This series entry contains informative, accurate, and detailed information on Greco-Roman myths, good material on many other European myths and American legends, and spotty coverage on the mythology of the rest of the world. Representation of some ethnic regions is perfunctory: one Inuit myth; no entries for Amaterasu, Izanagi, or Izanami (Japan); no Anansi, Orisha Nla, Obatala, or Olorun (Africa); no Kuan Yin (China) or Rama (India). Entries for "ghosts," "monsters," and "fairies," however, are each longer than the entry for King Arthur. There is no bowdlerizing, e.g., Aphrodite is born from the genitals of her castrated father. Greek and Roman names are cross-referenced. The black-and-white photographs, movie stills, and reproductions are well chosen but sparse. A reading list includes Web sites, and the index allows access by ethnic or national origin. The classical entries are much fuller than those in Mike Dixon-Kennedy's Encyclopedia of Greco-Roman Mythology (ABC-CLIO, 1998), but Philip Wilkinson's DK Illustrated Dictionary of Mythology (1998) is a more inviting and more comprehensive overview on the subject.-Patricia Lothrop-Green, St. George's School, Newport, RI
