My mom saw the book of greek myths I'm currently read on my floor and so she went and pulled out this for me.
Excited to get a little introduction to some mythology I'm not as familiar with.

Based on the snippets of Greek mythology, I must assume all the myths in the book are probably somewhat Christianized. (Or perhaps consider the Christianization over time to have become a legitimate version of the myth.) But still informative and deliciously sweeping with fantastic visual richness.

It's handy to keep around as a reference guide for myths. Not too much detail, but just enough to get bare facts.
