One of the beauties of Geraldine McCaughrean's Myths and Legends of the World series is the subtle but strong evidence of story repetitions across cultures and across time. This newest collection reflects many parallels. The Gull-Girl of Siberia attempts flight as did Daedalus and Icarus. The clever wife who helps Anansi the Spider Man reminds us of other wise women assisting their husbands. Just as Demeter could not keep Persephone in her world, Freya cannot protect her son Balder with immortality. Christian Rodska is a fine narrator. His vocal variations provide a distinct glimpse into each character. As the omniscient presence, he underscores the outcomes and lessons with final pleasure or pain. A.R.
