Avis de l'équipe

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.


Compiled by American essayist, editor, critic, and lecturer Hamilton Wright Mabie, here is a fantastic collection of classic legends from ancient mythology, The classical work of Hawthorne has been generously drawn upon. Included are "Three Golden Apples"; "Pomegranate Seeds"; "Chimera"; "Golden Touch"; "Gorgon's Head"; "Dragon's Teeth"; "Miraculous Pitcher"; "Paradise of Children"; "Cyclops"; "Argonauts"; "Giant Builder"; "How Odin Lost His Eye"; "Quest of the Hammer"; "Apples of Idun"; "Death of Balder"; and "Star and the Lily".

I do not think today's youth would know these old stories...Thor and Loki? Yes. Jason and the Argo and gold fleece? No. I liked the narrators voice. Stories were interesting.

Terrific narration good choice of myths

Currently this book is being played for the third time. It's unanimous - liked by kids and adults. The narrator is a delight!
Now that the children are a little older, they're able to sit quietly for longer stretches of time - this is the kind of "chapter book" they enjoy. This coming summer we'll be taking some fairly long car trips. This collection is one I'll be pleased to have along.

Only one negative - at times too much new vocabulary especially when there are so many unfamiliar names and places. This is one book we'll not be able to listen to straight through. At least not until the myths are understood and known.

I rated it three stars for story
because there is sooo much new vocabulary in some of the myths. Well-chosen story perhaps but we almost lose the story in finding out the meaning of new words. In "Joseph and The Golden Fleece" for example, the sentence just played had five vocabulary words. One sentence five new words - that's a lot to expect for the kids! Given unfamiliar names and places even the adults can lose the story.

Really enjoyed this collection but would choose easier versions of the story.
