This book has a lot of information and funny jokes. This was a fun way to read about the Greek legends. It is a good start for kids to get interested in books and history. I think it is a fun way to learn.

a fun book about the Greek myths! Sept. 12 2005
By theshortmad1wivmessyhair - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
As the title suggest the book describes the top ten Greek legends but each one is written in a different style, from an angry letter to Zeus, a play, a newspaper article or a police report in the case of Oedipus and I think this makes the book even more interesting. It also has top ten facts in between each legend from a list of the most powerful gods to a list of mythological criminals and their punishments.

As it is written in the same style as the horrible histories (and by the same author) it is light and easy as well as funny (if slightly cheesy) and goes into another depth to interest and entertain the reader without boring them.

If you're attracted to Greek mythology but don't want to go into too much depth I think you'll like this, i certainly do!

Easy intro Feb. 12 2007
By Alan Safani - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a marvelous book for kids ages 11 and up to get started with the major Greek myths. The stories are written in a style that is easy to comprehend, but with enough detail to the original myth. Highly recommended.
