As this is a comic style book, the pictures vary in sizes and it does appear to seem quite busy that there is a lot going on within the pictures yet I find that this would attract the children because they can look deeper into the pictures and see what is happening. The author does a nice job of preserving the original myth while still simplifying it enough for young readers to understand.

Her unique style has produced such vivid works and action-packed books as GOD AND HIS CREATIONS: TALES FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT. I gave this book three stars because even though i did enjoy this book I felt as if it was not one of the BEST children's books I have read. In this book you'll find the stories of Perseus, slayer of Medusa the gorgon; tragic lovers Orpheus and Eurydice; daring Heracles who fearlessly completed twelve Labours, and many more.In this collection, Williams retells eight myths using simple language and a unique comic-strip format. Though some of the stories are a little hard to follow, and shortened so much that the long names make up a large proportion of the overall letter count, my 7-year-old really likes this comic book version of some of the most famous Greek myths. In the ‘Twelve Tasks of Heracles’ the comic strip medium is shown to particular advantage – the tasks are described in the text and the way Heracles tackles them is shown in the pictures.

This irreverently funny book is just right for children 9 and up who shy away from anything that smacks of schoolwork and can be a bridge to territory they might otherwise never visit.

Wonderful art and a great way to introduce children to the myths, exciting reading for older reluctant readers and a fun way for adult classicists to see the tales told in a new light.
