Audible Editor Reviews

Hamilton Wright Mabie adapted these much-loved stories from ancient mythology and recreated them for children in a way that feels as though they're being shared by a wise old grandparent. Narrator Suehyla El-Attar enhances the traditional storytelling experience with her performance, using her rich, mature voice in a subtly conversational way. Children will love the sense of wonder she brings, and it feels as though she is speaking directly to the audience as her voice rises and falls with the adventures of mythological figures such as Hercules, Proserpina, Odin, and many others.
