About this product
- DescriptionThe classical heritage continues to impact modern culture in many ways.

The volume begins with a brief history of children's books on classical mythology in the United States. A chapter then discusses the various techniques through which classical myths were adapted for children. The antated bibliography follows, with each entry including a critical antation on how closely the work adheres to the original myth.
