Description

A culturally diverse, fact-filled, and gorgeously illustrated introduction to over 80 gods and goddesses from around the world—a perfect introduction to mythology for young readers.
 
With heroic deeds, family drama, pulse-pounding battles, and shape-shifting magic, mythology fascinates us all. But even the biggest enthusiasts find it hard to keep track of who’s who!
