about this item
A thoughtfully-written series of abridged classics, each of which has been rewritten to accommodate the reading and interest levels of children in the second through fourth grades who are simply too young to tackle larger, unabridged volumes. Includes book club questions and an afterword for parents and teachers by a noted educator.
From Icarus's legendary flight to Orpheus's trip to the underworld, this stunning edition brings to life 15 classic Greek myths. Easy to read and beautifully illustrated, it includes Heracles' mighty tasks, Pandora's box, King Midas's golden touch, and more!
