I know this is a children's book, but this book is what sparked my love of Greek Myths! As a child, I used to get it out of the library over and over again. I even asked my parents if I could "lose" it and pay the library so that I could keep the book. They said no, but they bought it for me for my following birthday. It has always been a favorite of mine! I just love the illustrations! Recently when I began reading the Percy Jackson And The Olympian series, I just had to reread it and refresh my memory on all the stories. I loved it all over again!
