2011 Award
Gifts From the Gods
( retold by Lise Lunge-Larsen. Ilus, Gareth Hinds, Houghton Mifflin $18.99 Score: )

Lise Lunge-Larsen begins and ends each of these classic myths by connecting them to the way we use a name or word from the stories in our every day lives. She connects words we speak to these ancient tales. Her storytelling style keeps the stories short but pithy. The art has some cartoonish elements, including comic book style bubbles. It all adds up to an easier read than more serious myth collections. For those who take their myths seriously, these will not replace classics like the D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths. That said, it is an interesting way into the classics.
