b.) The myths in this book are presented in short, simple text statements. The illustrations are bright, simple, and supportive of the story. The speech of the characters, however, adds another level to the text. In my opinion, these comments are humorous, but not necessary.a wealth of inspiring activities, discussion ideas and guided reading notes based onGreek Mythsby Marcia Williams

The bright pictures are certainly thought out and Williams did a great job playing with color. It could potentially be a very good intro to graphic novels for children.The reason I chose this book was because of the cover. Yes, I did judge a book by its cover, don't we all sometimes. I found the cover of this book rather captivating. with its bright colours and beautiful pictures. Marcia made a good choice making the cover of this book as bright as she did. Write ‘Prometheus’ and ‘Epimetheus’ at the top of a flip chart. Have some fun practising saying the names – find the small words in the names to help with this me-the-us. Introduce the The Orchard Book of Greek Myths and read the blurb. Read the foreword which explains the importance of the myths to the Greeks and why people still read and tell the stories today.

Critique: (a.)The style of this book detracts from its success. The pithy comments made by the characters take away focus from the accuracy and visual appeal of these myths.With BRAVO, MR. WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE! and TALES FROM SHAKESPEARE Marcia Williams introduces young readers to the world of William Shakespeare's plays. Another classic she has made much more accessible to children--and more appreciated by them--is THE ILIAD AND THE ODYSSEY. "My mother read me classics, but until I got older I never found them interesting," she says. "If I could make these stories more accessible, I realized, kids wouldn't have to wait until they were grown-up to appreciate them."
