Color-keyed icons beside the entries help readers follow the "trail," while related topics are suggested to encourage browsing and wider reading. Thus the young reader gains confidence in using a reference book in an enjoyable way.
Approximately two hundred fifty alphabetical entries-each illustrated in full color-survey the history, art, myths, culture, and everyday life of the ancient Greeks. For ages nine and up.

From Publishers Weekly:

Readers who like a more in-depth approach to mythology will appreciate Sean Sheehan's Illustrated Encyclopedia of Ancient Greece. Marked by icons, "trails" such as "Gods & Goddesses," "Myths" and "Writers" guide readers to entries that will amplify each theme. Words in the text listed in bold type refer readers to additional entries. Full-color photographs, maps and artifacts illuminate the text.
