About this deal

Thorough, almost every Greek god and major or minor myth is represented here, with the Trojan War and all that followed being the only part of the traditions to receive a somewhat perfunctory treatment- no doubt due to their unquestionably adult themes. Although some of the gorier details of these myths have been glossed over, the authors have opted for generalization rather than outright omission.

The audio book ended a bit abruptly, but it was a wonderful listening experience I highly recommend. The author-artists, Ingri and Edgar D'Aulaires, have created a sumptuous treat both for eye and imagination.Animals Everywhere was reprinted and retitled d'Aulaires' Book of Animals in late April 2007, followed by a new edition of The Two Cars, then by Too Big and Foxie, a retelling of Anton Chekhov's short story "Kashtanka". Ve bu kitapta da Toprak Ana'nın ilk çocuklarından başlayarak, Tanrıların çocuklarını, Prometheus'un neden cezalandırıldığını, Pandoranın kutusunu, Hades ile Persephone'nin hikayesini ( ki kendisi her zaman en sevdiğim kısım olmuştur) ve daha nicelerini okuyoruz.

Many of the d'Aulaires' early books depict the scenery and folktales of Norway: Ola, Children of the Northlights, East of the Sun and West of the Moon.I would sit cross legged right on the floor by the bottom shelf where it was kept, spread out the huge, thick book on my lap and read while I looked at the wonderful drawings. I know this is like everyone's favorite childhood mythology book (including mine, I think), but I don't like it.

I know that she gets white-washed in every painting ever, so the d'Aulaires' were probably just following in that tradition, but come ooooooon. Ingri and Edgar Parin d'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths, published by Doubleday in 1962, was an elaborately illustrated compendium of Greek mythology, 192 pages in 46 chapters.It was the beginning of my father's disdain for me, and his fear of my mind (the latter, I've always suspected, was close to the root of much of the abuse I suffered at his hands). S. nominee for the biennial, international Hans Christian Andersen Award for children's illustrators.
