Description: Blazing sun gods, fertile earth goddesses, sacred serpents, wily tricksters, and valiant heroes. Myths are the most powerful and popular stories ever told. This beautiful encyclopedia explores the world's mythologies. Each of its 15 chapters focuses on a particular culture, from Australia to the Americas. Colorful, lively entries describe key mythic figures, stories, and rituals and traditions. Children will discover information about hundreds of mythic figures from Ananse to Zeus. They'll find out more about familiar myths and be introduced to important new ones through entries on Athena, Durga, Huang Di, Maui, Osiris, Odin, King Arthur, Gilgamesh, Loki, Yurlungur, Coyote, Quetzalcoatl, pele, and many, many more.

Chapter openers provide a geographical and historical context for the myths. Sidebars encourage children to consider the powerful influence of myth on literature and language and to make connections between myths and history and culture. Paintings and artifacts from museums around the world show how myths have inspired people throughout the ages. From pictographs to Picassos, the paintings, sculptures, ceramics, masks, robes, carvings, and textiles illustrate the timeless power and glory of gods, goddesses, and monsters.
