i like this book, but then, i love greek mythology. it's fascinating. tells us all about the gods and goddesses that people worship/worshiped. i would totally go for Hades or Apollo.
Full of facts and amazing colour images - even if you aren't studying or planning to study Greek Mythology, have a quick flick through this book and you're bound to find something interesting.
A fantastic reference collection of Greek mythology from its Gods and Goddesses to the myths themselves with superb photographs and illustrations to accompany each entry.
