Percy Jackson’s Greek Heroes. Who cut off Medusa’s head? Who was raised by a she-bear? Who tamed Pegasus? It takes a demigod to know, and Percy Jackson can fill you in on all the daring deeds of Perseus, Atalanta, Bellerophon, and the rest of the major Greek heroes. These and many other familiar questions will be answered in Greek Gods and Heroes (Laurel-leaf books) pocket book. The text is very easy to read and understand as the author Robert Graves has written the book in extremely prosaic way. Short stories are fascinating and interesting and the narrative plot is like a vivid adventure/5(). There are many tellings of the Greek gods and heroes. This book by Roger Green gets many of the important events and figures. It does concentrate a lot on the heroes from Perseus, Theseus, Jason and chiefly Heracles. For those interested in the Rick Riordan books, this is a nice companion by: 4. The publisher was like, ‘Oh, you did such a great job writing about the Greek gods last year! We want you to write another book about the Ancient Greek heroes! It’ll be so cool!’ And I was like, ‘Guys, I’m dyslexic. It’s hard enough for me to read books.’.

His preface opens up the broad scope of the book, illuminating the Greek world which lies between the Caucasus Mountains and the mouth of the Guadalquivir River of Spain beginning about B.C. and lasting over two millennia/5. The interior was dark and crowded with even more marble heroes. Perseus navigated around a spear-wielding guy in full armour, an archer with a cracked stone bow and a hairy, pot-bellied guy wearing only a loincloth who was completely unarmed.

  "Percy Jackson's Greek Heroes" is a big, beautiful book about Greek mythology told from Percy's perspective. Percy puts a contemporary spin on the traditional tales of 12 Greek heroes; Perseus, Psyche, Phaethon, Otrera, Daedalus, Theseus, Atalanta, Bellerophon, Cyrene, . Heroes is a follow-up to Stephen Fry’s original book of Greek mythology, Mythos, which I haven’t read but now plan to. Whereas Mythos focuses on the titans and gods of Greek mythology, Heroes focuses on the mortal heroes (as the name suggests)/5. Tales of the Greek Heroes Learn all about the mysterious and exciting legends of the gods and heroes in Ancient Greece, from the birth of Heracles and the adventures of Theseus, to the first fall of Troy and the battle of the giants.   What parents need to know Parents need to know that Rick Riordan 's Percy Jackson's Greek Heroes is a hefty gift-size volume that profiles 12 heroes, as narrated by Percy Jackson from the bestselling series. It helps a little to read the Percy Jackson books first and the companion gift-size book Percy Jackson's Greek Gods.5/5.
