Review: We Goddesses

Okay, so I'm taking a break from the Cybils reviews for today. So here's a new scoop:

These three goddesses were the biggest rivals in Greek mythology. Now they combine to each tell their versions and motives behind they myths that made them famous. Although none of the myths are repeated, each one offers insights into happenings in another section of the book. Read about the story of the Golden Apple, Athena’s birth, Hera’s marriage to Zeus and so many more.

Although this is a wonderful retelling of the myths, the best thing about this book is the illustrations. Done in full color paintings, they are absolutely beautiful. This book is an excellent way for readers of Greek mythology to read new versions of old tales. Even if you aren’t a mythology veteran, each story is explained fully enough that new readers will enjoy them just as much as everyone else.
