I don't know why it took me so long to read these- no lie, they've been on my desk for almost 3 months. I am FLOORED by how well-done this series is!
I was a Classical Studies minor, spent a summer in Greece when I was in high school, memorized Edith Hamilton's Mythology, and in my younger years wore out a Mickey Mouse mythology book. The picture of Medusa with her snakey hair and dripping, body-less neck have stuck with me. I tried to find a picture to post here, but it seems it's been a long time defunct :-( If anyone can help a girl out- it had a white cover, Mickey, Myths...(oh the irony of the librarian giving that description).
Update: Oh my goodness, I found it! Thank goodness for eBay! Now to convince my husband our house needs more books...
