Wonderful overview of Greek Mythology for children

I loved this Greek mythology for children and adults. The stories are wonderful but it is especially good as an audiobook. The narrators are varied and just excellent. Although this is billed as a children's book I completely enjoyed it as an adult listener sharing it with my teen son.

This is a fantastic collection. Again, something that everyone can enjoy. The tales of heroics and mythic quirks are perfect for our 8-year-old and us.
