Gods and heroes get equal time in this charming introduction to Greek mythology. Andrew Sachs's relaxed narration encourages the listener to enter Pluto's dark, underground kingdom as well as Pandora's bed-chamber. Sachs uses a broad range of vocal expression and varies his style from story to story, easing the transition between tales and creating a graceful flow. His rendering of the drunken Cyclops and the dim-witted giants is really funny. This excellent recording of sixteen familiar myths will send children scurrying to the bookshelves in search of more stories of that far-off time.
