Description

Read by Paul Newman, Sidney Poitier, Kathleen Turner, and Matthew Broderick, here are the stories of the immortals of Olympus - the gods and goddesses of ancient Greece - as freshly described as if they were alive today.

Mighty Zeus, with his fistful of thunderbolts; mischievous little Hermes; grey-eyed Athena, godess of wisdom; Asclepius, the first physician; Orpheus and his beloved Euridice; Helios the sun, crossing the heavens in his fiery chariot.... these and other equally fabulous figures are featured here with their heroic deeds and petty squabbles illuminated in full dimension.

Critiques

"For any child fortunate enough to have this generous book...the kings and heroes of ancient legend will remain forever matter-of-fact; the pictures interpret the text literally and are full of detail and witty observation." ( Horn Book)

The best way to read the Book of Greek Myths!

We're so happy with this purchase. We love all the D'Aulaire books and have spent many happy hours with them, but, I must admit, the Book of Greek Myths was a bit of a trying experience to read. All the many names of the Greek Gods and Goddesses left me tongue tied, but the illustrations were so compelling that the children (8, 6 & 5) requested it again and again. It was such a joy to happen upon a flawlessly enunciated, unabridged recording. We often listen to it while following along with the book. Its been a great way to share these stories and now we all know how to pronounce the names!

Awesome Narration!

My seven year old son listened and followed along in the book for the passed two days. He was totally hooked. He said some of the parts were creepy and there was a lot of killing though. He was able to read the characters names all correctly afterward which impressed me because I didn't even know how to say some of them. Great buy!

Fabulous for the young and the young at heart

I originally purchased this book for a school project for my daughter. I had no idea going in, that I too would fall in love. The story is timeless and even as an adult, it held my attention that entire time! I have already listened to the entire book twice, but yet plan to buy the hard copy for my personal library.

D'Aulaires' - #1 book to learn basics; ALL AGES!

D'Aulaires Book of Greek Myths, is the absolute best book written for learning everything you would like to know about Greek Mythology, in my opinion, of course. This audible version is great as it portrays the facts in more of a story form than anything you'd find in a textbook. If you've always been interested in learning more about Greek Mythology but don't know where to start; this audio version is highly recommend! There isn't just one person reading to you, droning on and on... There are many voices, both male and female, reading for different "stories." Plus, it has been broken into short segments containing each story. If listened to from beginning to end It's in chronological order. Although, if you'd like to skip to a certain "Myth," that is possible as well! 5 stars all the way. I've listened many times in different formats and have read the actual book. I feel that the audio version will always be a "go-to" whenever one would want to brush up on any Greek Mythology or just get started on your journey of more in depth study. Like I said, this is great for all ages!!

so happy to find this on Audible!

My children loved this production on cassette tape when they were little. The book itself is wonderful and then listening to the stories read by these amazing actors added even more to the experience.

We now re-listened as teenagers and mom, and enjoyed it all over again.

Highly recommended for elementary age and younger, and a great book before bedtime or to listen while falling asleep.

Timeless

I read this book when I was in middle school, and I absolutely loved it. I got the audio book because my 6 year old stepdaughter loves learning about the beliefs of different cultures, and it definitely turned out to be a hit. She was so upset when it was over that I had to restart it for her.
