I absolutely adore Greek mythology. The authors told the stories well and the pictures were really good.

Picked it up for my daughter to read but then grabbed it myself so I'd remember what the hell she was talking about when telling me about her Percy Jackson books. A good reminder of Greek mythology. The author's tone is knowledgeable and slightly flippant at times, which is amusing.
You can't mess up the stories of the Greek Myths. Not quite sure why they would put "Their Meanings" in the title though, never really touched on that. Thank you Rory; this one came from his book shelf.

I expected a list of monsters but there isn't one. The monsters are buried in the other stories, making it difficult to do research just on monsters.
This book tells about the stories behind all the characters in Greek Mythology!!!

Boy, do I love this subject!!!
I dint like this book it was lame because it tells you what their meaning means
