I squealed when I opened this unexpected book mail! Right in my wheelhouse. Publishers and Publicists, please note: sending me a real book will always result in a timely review. Books get placed on the front of my double deep shelving system meaning I see them. Kindle books require me to work a little harder.
Gods and Heroes: Mythology Around the World is the encyclopedia you didn't know that your kids needed. Its arranged alphabetically from Amaterasu to Zeus every culture from The American Great Plains to West Africa are included. You'll see gods, heroes, and creatures from all the major pantheons.
The illustrations are cartoons, kind of a pop funko style and so you could use this an intro for young children, although there are so many rare stories included big kids will giggle as well.
Please note that I received a free advance ARC of this book from Workman Publishing without a review requirement or any influence regarding review content should I choose to post a review. Apart from that, I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.
