Those of you who are boys will, perhaps, spend a great deal of time in reading Greek books; and the girls, though they may not learn Greek, will be sure to come across a great many stories taken from Greek history, and to see, I may say every day, things which we should not have had if it had not been for these old Greeks.

There have been a great many different kinds of heroes, for in every age and among every people the hero has stood for the qualities that were most admired and sought after by the bravest and best; and all ages and peoples have imagined or produced heroes as inevitably as they have made ploughs for turning the soil or ships for getting through the water or weapons with which to fight their enemies.

Hello, Zeus speaking. I'm sitting on my throne way up on the Olymp, reading "The Twelve Olympians: Illustrated Greek Mythology" - and so should you! Well, not that I'll let you sit on my... More > throne, but you can follow the adventures of me and my fellow gods and goddesses that are contained in these 14 illustrated stories. Romance, drama, bravery, despair - these tales have got it all covered for you. And while you're here, you'll also meet some of the mortal heroes of ancient Greece, such as Heracles, Helen of Troy, Perseus and Andromeda or Achilles and Odysseus. All adventures stay true to the originals as recorded by my good friend Homer, so you'll be able to educate your peasant friends about the fact that I gave Pandora a jar, and not a box, to take to earth with her. Those kind of details tend to impress people. Well I'll go back to work now - I can hear Hera, Athena and Aphrodite arguing from here over some golden apple. Seems like even a god can never have a quiet moment for himself…. happy reading!< Less
