    This book doesn’t explain the myths or make you examine their symbolism. It simply tells the stories with a modern sensibility and sense of humor. By far the best presentation of Greek myths I have ever read.

    This is a brilliant book! It made my daughter really interested in Greek mythology. I think it should be used as a textbook in our school system. Stephen is an amazing narrator as usual.
