For thirty years Hugh Lupton has been a central figure in the British storytelling revival.From School Library Journal:
Gr 3-5–These chapter books offer details about three Greek myths and are shorter and easier to read than Rick Riordan's “Percy Jackson & the Olympians” (Hyperion) books–though they will appeal to fans of that series. Each title covers elements of the tales that are not often included, adding new angles to stories children might already be familiar with. For example, Demeter devotes pages to the plight of the nymph who saw Persephone's capture. These titles also make it easier to see the connections among stories that are often told separately, such as the roles Daedalus and Icarus play in Theseus and the Minotaur. The language is clear and easy to follow, while at the same time evocative and lyrical. This style is a perfect match for the acrylic illustrations, which call to mind the faces and figures found on Greek vases. Writing and illustrations come together to paint a complete picture of the myths for young readers. The titles both relay their stories and allow glimpses into the ancient world and larger mythology. A must have for libraries with Greek myths enthusiasts, and a solid choice for all others.–Heather Talty, formerly at Columbia Grammar & Preparatory School, New York Cityα(c) Copyright 2013.
