Jenni W. (hmr) reviewed D'Aulaires Book of Greek Myths on
I enjoyed this much more than I expected. It's like a Crib Notes for all of the great Greek myths from the gift of fire from the gods to the story of Helen of Troy. It's read by four great actors, Paul Newman, Sidney Poitier, Kathleen Turner, and Matthew Broderick. I think this book is better heard than read. It's a little violent for small kids but for pre-teens and up, it's a very good book.
