I don't know how many times I've read it, but every single story and illustration felt intimately familiar when I opened it now, 20 years later. This classic introduction to Greek mythology for children, written and illustrated by the husband-wife team, is divided into three main sections. This is the very first book I remember reading all by my little self when I was three and I have read it a million more times. the kings and heroes of ancient legend will remain forever matter-of-fact; the pictures interpret the text literally and are full of detail and witty observation. No more than Mother Goose, but they formed the imagination and are part of our Western understanding of who we are.

Edgar concentrated on illustrating books using wood block engravings and stone lithography; Ingri garnered commissions to paint portraits of prominent businessmen. Yunan mitolojisinde ölümlüler Tanrılara nasıl tapıyorsa Tanrılarda Toprak Ana'ya öyle saygı gösteriyorlardı çünkü Toprak Ana bütün hayatın kaynağıydı. When we finished the book, my kid wanted to immediately start over, to learn about the Greek gods again. What she did was awesome, I think, and at least she wasn't punished forever in the underworld like Tantalus. When she was 15, the Norwegian painter Harriet Backer encouraged her to pursue art as a career, and Ingri later studied at art schools in Norway, Germany and France.Its immediate popularity prompted NYRB to reissue d'Aulaire's Trolls in 2006, which likewise was a meticulous reprint of the 1972 original pressing.

The first covers the beginnings of the world and the stories of the Olympian gods and goddesses; the second is devoted to the minor gods, nymphs, satyrs, and centaurs; and the third relates the tales of the human heroes of epic and play. Edgar illustrated Children of the Soil: A Story of Scandinavia by Nora Burglon, who was a 1932 Newbery Medal runner-up for that work.

Now that goodreads has told me that he has added this book to his shelves, I think it even more likely! To hear them talk today, they are in love with the book themselves, though I doubt it can be felt as deeply as my love for the book. Greek mythology can be a very complex subject, but this book does a fabulous job of making the myths accessible and enjoyable.

Kids don't always love what their parents love, however, so I put it on his shelf and waited for him to discover it. But that doesn't make this volume any less worth owning, but rather underlines its ultimate purpose: to open a door into the bottomless universe of classical studies. All the stuff she did was pretty cool, and really smart to make the daughters of that King cook him alive.
