    1. One thing I appreciate about stories based on Greek Mythology is how contrary they run to what one would narratively expect. In doing so, they make me realize just how conditioned I've become.Take Medusa. I knew the end of the story, wherein the hideous gorgon is slain by the young hero, Perseus - very classic monster-movie stuff - but I was unfamiliar with the beginnings of the tale, which Lattimore goes into in lush, grotesque detailere lived in the muddy depths of the ocean a sea witch. She w [...]

    3. In this version of the Medusa/Perseus story, Medusa is the beautiful daughter of a sea witch. She's so lovely, in fact, that she catches the eye of Poseidon.When they become betrothed, Medusa looses her perspective, and wits apparently, and makes the mistake of her life when she dares to compare her beauty to Athena's. That goddess becomes outraged and subsequently curses Medusa and turns her into the monster we all know. Which is when the story turns to Perseus' saga. In Ms. Lattimore's version [...]


    4. MythThis story is about a beautiful girl, Medusa, who was basically full of herself. She said that she was more beautiful than the goddess, Athena. So, Athena put a spell on the girl, maing her very ugly and causing anyone to turn to stone if they looked at her face. She also told her that one day a boy from the sea would come to kill her. Meanwhile, a woman and her son were found at sea, they accidentally traveled too far and were captured by mean soldiers. The tyrant decided that he wanted to [...]


    5. This book is about a Greek myth. There is a daughter born from a sea witch that is cursed for boasting about her beauty as like a goddess and thinking to be more beautiful than Athena. Being cursed by Athena, Medusa's face is disfigured with snakes coming out of her head and is told that she will live out the rest of her life that way until one day she will be slain. She is also told that anyone that looks upon her face will be turned to stoneWithout giving away the ending. This also was a fun s [...]


    6. My daughter (2 1/2) could not sit still for this book. It is rather on the long side. However, my son (5) very much enjoyed the story and the pictures. The pictures are well done and dramatic without being scary which is important for my kids. The pictures are full of detail and color and you can easily spend a few minutes taking a look at each and every page.


    7. I was trying to do some very basic research about Medusa herself. Naturally Perseus is a big part of her mythos, but it was still frustrating to see that this book was more about him and his story than about Medusa. The illustrations were beautiful, though!



    8. A nice companion to Cupid and Psyche (beautiful girl earns the ill will of corresponding goddess: Venus/Athena), but lacking the K.Y. Craft gorgeousness.


    9. I tried to rate this at three stars, and my daughter said, "That calls for four stars!" Okay then. I thought it was a little wordy.
