Get to know the iconic gods, heroes, and tragic figures: Zeus, the all-powerful father of the gods; Hera, his cunning and jealous wife; seductive, golden-haired Aphrodite, the goddess of love; King Midas, who greedily loves gold above all else; the sculptor Pygmalion, who falls in love with his creation; and many more. With each story, Evslin captures the beauty and power of Greek mythology, and through his funny asides, he gives life to these ancient characters. A perennial staple of curriculums around the world, Evslin's Heroes, Gods and Monsters of the Greek Myths is an invaluable resource.
