Description
Monsters have played an important role in the myths of all cultures. "Everywhere in the world people have imaged monsters, made up stories about them, and tried, in art, to show us what they looked like," Anne Rockwell writes in her Author's Note.

In the timeless tradition of storytelling, she retells ten of the ancient tales from Greek mythology. Her straightforward, simple prose and brilliant illustrations bring to life such famous monsters as Polyphemus, the one-eyed Cyclops; the Gorgon Medusa, with hair made of snakes; and the Minotaur, with a human body and a bull's head.

The fresh retelling and glowing illustrations add up to a gem of a picture book for parents and children to enjoy together."With descriptive yet concise language, each one- or two-page retelling of the 10 myths in this collection captures the spirit of the tale....This book complements Rockwell's Robber Baby with the addition of some of the less familiar characters, including the Hydra, the Cyclopedes, the Graiae, Medusa, and the Minotaur. It will be satisfying read-aloud for families as well as a welcome classroom addition."--Library Journal.
