Reviewed by Bob Walch

This interactive workbook has it all - the heroes, gods, and monsters that have made Greek mythology a fascinating subject for both children and adults of all ages.

Filled with facts and curious stories plus plenty of engaging flaps, maps, stickers, hero and monster cards, and fact files on a whole range of mythological creatures, this devilishly clever chapter book will keep the user busy hours.

Paging through this well illustrated handbook you'll learn who never leaves Olympus without his winged sandals, how to can keep the hydra from growing more heads and who Nike was before she became the inspiration for a whole line of running shoes.

An excellent way to pique a youngster's curiosity about Greek myth and history, after spending time with "The Mythology Handbook" your child may wish to move on to more detailed and challenging volumes that deal with the same subject matter.
