Overview

Twenty-seven stories adapted for young children from selections of works of classic writers of the ancient world. The stories were chosen by the author for their inspirational value, either "because they contained fine moral points, or else because they were poetic statements of natural phenomena which might enhance the study of natural science." Writers represented in the collection include Plato, Homer, Hesiod, Aristophanes, Pliny, and Ovid. Numerous black and white illustrations complement the text. Suitable for ages 6 and up.
