The McElderry Book of Greek Myths, retold by Eric A. Kimmel and illustrated by Pep Montserrat is a new favorite of ours. The illustrations are extraordinary. At the beginning of each of the twelve myths, there is a full page illustration like this one, at the beginning of "Pandora's Box":
And interspersed throughout the stories on every page
are other illustrations, like this one, from "Prometheus":
It's a beautiful book that we are heartily enjoying during read-alouds this week. My eleven-year-old keeps snatching it when we're not reading it out loud and reading ahead, which is a pretty good recommendation in and of itself. ☺
Book Sharing Monday is hosted at Serendipity. Come join in on the fun!
