KIRKUS REVIEW

Principal tales from Greek mythology are retold here, and related in the introduction to the characteristics of people to make up explanatory stories for the happenings in the world around them. Included are the creation stories of the titans, the coming of the gods to Olympus-and on- to Hercules' twelve labours, Hector and Achilles at Troy, and so forth. A good working roundup.
