Robert Grave's The Greek Myths with Rick Riordan


 
 
Rick Riordan meets Robert Graves in 'The Greek Myths'
 
"The Gold standard in Greek Mythology in a dazzling Graphic Deluxe Edition with a new introduction by the bestselling author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series"
 
This is a vibrant, playful-looking new edition! But a word of caution for parents: Graves didn’t write this book for kidlings – crack open the book, and you find a glorious, idiosyncratic chronicle based on his years of research and life in the Mediterranean. The book contains stories that are definitely not YA fare (Pasiphae's passion for a bull, for instance, or Medea's murder of her own children). Dressing it up to look like a comic book with a preface by a popular YA author is slightly misleading.
