Illustrated by Mordicai Gerstein
From The Horn Book:
These breezy retellings of Greek and Roman myths, each voiced by one of its protagonists, are brief:
… The informal contemporary tone can be amusingly anachronistic (Sisyphus: "Perhaps, if I talk fast, I can tell you why I'm here before Pluto puts me back to work").
… Gerstein's full-page pen drawings are lively with action; like the text, they scrap heroism in favor of engaging humor.
… these piquant versions will attract a broad range of readers, while their playful manipulation of point of view is entertainingly provocative.
