If I’d read the reviews I’d have known ahead of time that I’d bought a kids book. I’m not upset though—I love the full-color illustrations and the book arrived in good condition and in a timely manner. My boyfriend’s got a couple goddaughters so maybe they’ll enjoy the book too.

Another of the 8 year old Grandsons reading material about Ancient Gods. He is enjoying the books about both the Greek and Egyptian Gods.

The short text dedicates a two-page spread to each of the major Greek gods & goddesses, providing information on the role of that god & how he fits in to the very complicated family tree of Greek gods, with pages cross-referenced to other gods. In design & layout, this book reminds me of the "Eyewitness" guides. I found myself wanting more information and wishing that the text were a little longer than 42 pages (not including the two page index) -- but perhaps that's just a sign I'm ready to advance beyond books written primarily for children. Overall, I think this is a fun, well-illustrated book that young people would return to time & time again.
