    1. I first encountered this book on work experience with Year 3 and loved the simplistic way it tells Greek Myths in child friendly language. Starting a new IPC topic of Myths and Legends on SEB I remembered this book and invested in it. My year 6's cannot get enough of it, we have done many pieces of work based around the myths including literacy, art and even some numeracy (there is a map in the front of the book of Atticus's journey). It is a fantastic resource in the way that myths are short an [...]

    2. Atticus the Storyteller sets of on a journey with his donkey to the story telling competition of the gods in Troy. Along the way he meets some people and he tells them stories although most of them he tells to his donkey. He gets to the competition and wins of course. The stories include all my old favourites from Greek mythology and a few I didn't know or remember. They included the trials of Heracles, The Trojan War, Theseus and the Minotaur, the adventures of Jason and the Argonauts and of co [...]

    3. “Storytelling…at its most compelling.” Junior Education, Book of the Month and 100 Best Books of 2002“Very accessible for young readers. The writing is perfect for reading aloud. An ideal source book (and) a useful map shows the location of each myth.” Child Education“A splendid reminder of the wonder of the oldest of stories. This large, fat volume… should be in every home and classroom. The language is sure and lyrical and the tales read aloud well. A perfect gift.”Wendy Coolin [...]

    4. As a lover of Percy Jackson I fell in love with Greek and Roman mythology. It is my favourite subject and I love to educate myself on different stories and myths. This book provided me with 100 stories and myths about Greek mythology. I deeply enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone, children or adults, who want to educate themselves on Greek myths in an easy to understand way. Reading things in a fun storytelling way makes it easier to remember. I hope you enjoy this book (if you dec [...]

    5. I would give it more than five stars if it were possible. Illustrated brightly with pictures and a fluid ease of narration, this book from my childhood sparked in me my love for all Grecian mythology. In fact, this book was what introduced me to my love for Literature. Little did I know that I was actually immersing myself in Homer's universe. The colorful characters, as well as the memorable way Coats portrayed them, appeals to a child's mind. Without this book, I would not have had such a vivi [...]

    6. This is probably one of my favourite books of all time, and it's safe to say this was the book that first had me hooked on Greek mythology. It's just so amazing (:

    7. Have read and re-read this to my daughter and she loves it. A wonderful introduction to the Greek myths.

    8. I read this book when I was about 5 or 6 years old, and it was what made me love mythology. Hihgly recommended for children.
