Treasury of Greek Mythology: Classic Stories of Gods, Goddesses, Heroes & Monsters

Donna Jo Napoli, illus. by Christina Balit. National Geographic, $24.95 (192p) ISBN 978-1-4263-0844-4
Napoli brings new life to the familiar stories of Greek mythology in this intimate compilation, telling each tale with grace, clarity, and emotion. When Demeter mourns her missing daughter, “Her cheeks grew hollow, her body gaunt. Greens turned brown.... Hunger twisted the innards of every living creature.” Through the brief but vivid retellings, readers will better understand such figures as Apollo, Ares, Dionysus, and Helen, while sidebars contextualize the stories. Balit’s majestic and sinuous spreads mimic the drama and passion of the legends. Ages 8–12. (Oct.)
