Myth- Aliki, The Gods And Goddesses Of Olympics

Myth- Aliki , The Gods and Goddesses of Olympics , Harper Collins Publishers ,
1994 .

After reading The Gods and Goddesses of Olympus , my first reaction was
that it was a wonderful and fascinating example of how Greek mythology explains
the theories about life , death , and the wonders of nature . Although I enjoyed
the book , I also wondered if it was a little too confusing to a young child ,
