I can't possibly write a good enough review for this book because there are so many fantastic things about it, I can't do it justice. Let's just say that it is the best quick-reference guide for mythology (although this one is about females) that I've ever used. It's not just great for kids. I'm a strong visual learner, and this book just makes it so easy for me to quickly gather facts and puts them visually in a context that I can remember them, too (which is usually hard for me). The comics, the format, the "friends" and "foes" Facebook-style sidebar, the top 10 things to know about each goddess...I could go on and on...it's perfect. And it's FUNNY. Hera's Big Journal of Revenge--hilarious! Dial-a-Muse--ingenious! First Annual Mount Olympus Beauty Contest--gold! Family Tree--way to go! I love the tongue-in-cheek touched-up photos of greek pictures and statues. The names are consistent (Greek--including "Heracles"--it's about time), and they even give the Roman equivalent. There are even URL suggestions for further information. I highly recommend this book, for friends, kids, and libraries.
