Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The Monsters in Myth series makes a convincing bid for entry onto crowded mythology shelves by focusing on the pantheon of beasties in place of the marquee heroes: gods and goddesses. The text in each is drily straightforward, though peppered with a few dramatic reenactments of choice fracases. Still, the books are thorough and respectful of a number of ancient and modern sources and bend over backward to navigate often contradictory, interlinked legends. The Monsters of Hercules covers the 12 monster-centric labors of the greatest hero. A number of paintings and photos break up the otherwise text-heavy pages, and copious chapter notes and reading suggestions conclude. This is by no means entry-level stuff, but for kids handy with the basics and ready to delve deeper, these books will be of great use.--Chipman, Ia. Copyright 2010 Booklist"
