Praise For…


“Although goddesses are central to so many Greek myths—where would The Odyssey be without Athena, or Hercules without Hera?—they are rarely the focus of retellings of these myths. In this beautifully illustrated, and illustrative, collection of tales, Chae’s lively rendering of these myths has an eye on original sources but a view to giving the goddesses center stage. From mother Earth to the Muses, who governed the arts and sciences, goddesses were central to the ancient understanding of the world and human creativity. This book is a perfect gift for any child interested in the power of storytelling, and the storytelling of power. —A.E. Stallings, 2011 MacArthur Fellow
