Children • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1962

This best-loved children’s book about the gods and goddesses, kings and heroes of ancient Greek mythology offers a whirlwind introduction to Zeus, Hera, Hermes and the other gods, and their often rascally behavior on Mount Olympus and among mortals on Earth. The four superstars who alternate reading the tales do a fine job interpreting the drama and humor in the d’Aulaires’ retellings of these classic stories. This is a listening treat for young and old alike, but keeping track of the complex genealogy of the gods is a challenge. Children will get the most out of this audio presentation if they can follow along with a copy of the book. C.R.A. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR 97]
