Bought this book in Rhodes in 2012 to read whilst I was out there as I've always been fascinated by Greek Mythology but only knew vaguely about the myths that shape our civilisation nowadays. This is a fantastic read as it's populated with lots of pictures but details with text and passages to explain the gods and history itself. One of the best parts of this is that it offers a family tree of the majority of the Greek Gods titled "The Theogony of Hesiod" after the Cosmonology is established.

Technically, I didn't read this. But it's the best I could find for our Greek mythology unit. This counts as one book, as Miss K. said.
