Editorial Review

A noteworthy review of Greek Mythology from School Library Journal on December 1, 2012

Cover: Aphrodite: Goddess of Love and Beauty

Although Temple tries to summarize several myths in connection to each of the selected gods in a way that will hold the attention of readers, these complex tales are sometimes overly simplified. For example, In Hera, the author states that Heracles was brought to Olympus to live; most sources that mention a stay on Olympus give him only a brief stop there. Temple does offer insightful historical information about Greek rituals, worship practices, and architecture, and a helpful ‘Principal Gods of Greek Mythology’ family tree will give readers new to the myths a handy reference to sort out the characters. Squier’s illustrations are eye-catching.
