Kids can lose themselves in a world of myth and magic while learning important cultural history in this beloved classic collection of Greek mythology. I found this gem, considering she did not have any other audio books that I found and my ancient car only takes cassettes. Edgar concentrated on illustrating books using wood block engravings and stone lithography; Ingri garnered commissions to paint portraits of prominent businessmen.

And I like that even with that guy with the bones of that instrument that didn't work upside down, I love how he beat that guy. I -- Io: I liked her punishment from Hera, being turned into a cow, but I don't think it is fair for just having been with Zeus.Greek mythology can be a very complex subject, but this book does a fabulous job of making the myths accessible and enjoyable. Still, they love this book, and I hope they share it with their kids (if they choose to have kids) in turn. To hear them talk today, they are in love with the book themselves, though I doubt it can be felt as deeply as my love for the book. This classic introduction to Greek mythology for children, written and illustrated by the husband-wife team, is divided into three main sections.

This volume was carefully printed to reproduce the vibrant color and texture of the original lithographs, and includes a glowing foreword by Michael Chabon. Rereading as an adult, I was struck by the absence of the story of Antigone, an odd choice given that the D'Aulaires do devote some space to Oedipus's warring sons.It was neat that he plopped out his eyes when he found out he had killed his father because that was the punishment he'd said and he lived up to it. We encourage them to think for themselves, to question, to seek, to demand that authority earns respect, so their experience with the book isn't as revelatory as mine. In 2016, University of Minnesota Press reissued East of the Sun and West of the Moon under the title d'Aulaires' Book of Norwegian Folktales.

Everyone, no matter what his or her age, should read this indispensable retelling of the Greek Myths, a foundation stone of the Western tradition.

After studying architecture for a year in Munich, he began art studies at its School of Arts and Crafts (German: Kunstgewerbeschule). I have only recently delved into the wide world of audio books and I have found that narration can either make or break a book.
