    I love myth and so much of the baby pool we play our lives in can be seen, like Narcissus face, reflected in these classic tales But it is time to retire most and rewrite the rest Midas the version i recall learning has King Midas, greedy and selfish, with a complete lack of foresight All he cares for is gold so he loses the most precious thing, when his daughter runs in and surprises him with a hug.In this version he is simply inconvenienced by hunger darn those golden dolmas and Bacc I love myth and so much of the baby pool we play our lives in can be seen, like Narcissus face, reflected in these classic tales But it is time to retire most and rewrite the rest Midas the version i recall learning has King Midas, greedy and selfish, with a complete lack of foresight All he cares for is gold so he loses the most precious thing, when his daughter runs in and surprises him with a hug.In this version he is simply inconvenienced by hunger darn those golden dolmas and Bacchus old chap reverses the wish No lesson learned You too can be Donald J Trump and never suffer a consequence for a lifetime of crime, if you cultivate the right circle of god like friends.Actually there are many tired themes Lots of unquestioned philandering males and viciously jealous females jealous of looks, attention, whatever Many are brought down by their inability to obey well, to adequately obey Given directions, usually several steps But do NOT do the thing they simply MUST do.And the familiar don t over reach lesson which i m not crazy about, now that i think of it, either The story here is Helios son Phaeton demanding to drive the chariot and dying But we all remember learning not to fly too close to the sun, or take on monsters we are not strong enough to slay.These are particularly bad messages for girls, who already hear way too much Smile, and just listen when we should be teaching them to slay monsters and fly anywhere they want Now i think of Elizabeth Warren saying Why run for President just to state all the things we cannot change Take home message Be obedient, fools Never question authority They d never lie to you.Like poor Psyche if she d just listened to her husband, and not her sisters A very unhealthy message for abused and isolated women.The story of Baucis and Philemon was new to me and my favorite It was a theme found in many cultures and every religion charity and welcoming strangers sans vetting It was beautifully told It also had a common myth the cleansing of the evil world with a flood.But I particularly loved awarding the good by recognizing the superiority and intrinsic divinity of Trees.The illustrations are lovely and i read this with full lighting to appreciate those, and the smooth paper smells delightful for fellow book sniffers but now i think i need some animal tales, Anansi maybe

    I think it s dumb how she uses the Roman names of the gods instead The book is called Favorite GREEK Myths , not Favorite Roman Myths If it s a book about Greek mythology, she should use the Greek names It confuses me, and it s really annoying.

    The book itself is very pretty, with gorgeous art and aesthetically pleasing typeface The myths are short and sweet, and there are some lovely quotes nestled within the pages Overall, a nice book I m not mad about the Roman names because at the beginning of the book, it clearly says, nearly all of the myths in this collection are derived from the work of the Roman poet Ovid The stories are originally Greek, but since they re taken from a Roman source, they do have Roman names Many reviewe The book itself is very pretty, with gorgeous art and aesthetically pleasing typeface The myths are short and sweet, and there are some lovely quotes nestled within the pages Overall, a nice book I m not mad about the Roman names because at the beginning of the book, it clearly says, nearly all of the myths in this collection are derived from the work of the Roman poet Ovid The stories are originally Greek, but since they re taken from a Roman source, they do have Roman names Many reviewers on here don t seem to get that

    Even though this is titled Greek myths, the author uses the Roman mythology names in the book Very disappointing in that respect.

    Osborne, the author of the Magic Tree House books, retells twelve stories of Greek myth in a very slim 75 not very dense at all pages volume for children As in Enid Blyton s collection, these are tales mostly well known to Western culture, also mostly from Ovid s Metamorphoses Orpheus and Eurydice, Echo and Narcissus, Midas greedy wish, Persephone and Hades, the ill starred love of Cupid and Psyche She also includes a few obscurities Arcus, who shot his mother while hunting after she had Osborne, the author of the Magic Tree House books, retells twelve stories of Greek myth in a very slim 75 not very dense at all pages volume for children As in Enid Blyton s collection, these are tales mostly well known to Western culture, also mostly from Ovid s Metamorphoses Orpheus and Eurydice, Echo and Narcissus, Midas greedy wish, Persephone and Hades, the ill starred love of Cupid and Psyche She also includes a few obscurities Arcus, who shot his mother while hunting after she had been turned into a bear the race of Atalanta and Hippomenes and perhaps most obscure, the rather grim story of Ceyx and Alcyone, who turned into a kingfisher when her drowned husband washed ashore.Osborne is a decent writer, and infuses the stories with fairy tale timelessness while emphasizing their explanatory intent She s less captivating than Blyton, however, and her retellings lack detail and the rich color than the master raconteurs Blyton, the D Aulaires do She doesn t, for example, mention Midas turning his children to gold, which gives the tale its real pathos nor in her story of Orpheus in the underworld is there any menace conveyed from Charon or Cerberus These tales are pleasant but thin and plain and why revisit the classics if you re not going to make them shine just a little brighter

    I read it first when I was a child and I really liked it But now, 9 years later, that I read Rick Riordan s series Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus,and did a lot of research about the greeks and romans Gods.I realized that Mary Pope Osborne called her book Greek Myths but used lots of Roman names for the Gods Most Gods had not only different names in greek than in latin, but they had different personalitys too For the romans,the gods werelike soldiers ready por war For the greeks I read it first when I was a child and I really liked it But now, 9 years later, that I read Rick Riordan s series Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus,and did a lot of research about the greeks and romans Gods.I realized that Mary Pope Osborne called her book Greek Myths but used lots of Roman names for the Gods Most Gods had not only different names in greek than in latin, but they had different personalitys too For the romans,the gods werelike soldiers ready por war For the greeks they weren t That s why I don t like the myths to mix.PS Sorry about the grammar, english isn t my first language

    So far, this is my favorite of Greek mythology children s books I liked the illustrations and the stories were told withfluid story language rather than just choppy retelling The one thing I didn t like was the use of the Roman names I think it is because these stories are from later in history so it makes sense but it just makes it hard for me to keep things straight

    This book contains 15 different stories of various Greek gods and goddess This book would fit well in a unit on different book genres, as an introduction to myths The stories are short in length and also have illustrations, so this could be a good read aloud book that can give students insight to what a myth is as well as what information can be revealed about ancient culture and believes This is also a good introduction to a discussion about what morals and values are and what affects said m This book contains 15 different stories of various Greek gods and goddess This book would fit well in a unit on different book genres, as an introduction to myths The stories are short in length and also have illustrations, so this could be a good read aloud book that can give students insight to what a myth is as well as what information can be revealed about ancient culture and believes This is also a good introduction to a discussion about what morals and values are and what affects said morals and values I like that this book provides students with an accurate telling of ancient Greek myths Like I mentioned earlier, I also enjoy the length each individual story is because it allows for better use in the classroom
