Description

The ancient Greeks worshipped a host of gods and goddesses. Preserved today in poetry, art, and mythology, these divine beings were part of a religious pantheon from which worshippers sought health, good crops, and deliverance from enemies. Illustrator John Green brings 22 of these legendary deities vividly to life in this collection of realistic, detailed renderings. Ready-to-color illustrations, each accompanied by a page of descriptive text, depict Atlas holding up the heavens as punishment for his role in the War of the Titans; Hermes slaying the many-eyed Argus as he sleeps; Aphrodite kneeling and weeping over the body of Adonis, killed by a wild boar; Prometheus chained to a rock and facing eternal punishment for stealing fire for mankind; the nine Muses gathered together on Mount Pamassus; Eos streaking across the sky in her chariot, bringing the dawn; and 16 other exciting illustrations. A great way to introduce youngsters to Greek mythology.
