“The drawings… are excellent and excitingly evocative.” New York Times
“The D’Aulaires’ illustrations have a memorable quality: once pored over, they will never leave the minds of the viewer. Decades later, the name Gaea will still evoke the soft green picture of lovely Mother Earth… This introduction to mythology is a treasure.” Emilie Coulter
