Horn Book Review

This entry-level adaptation of the famous Greek myth geared toward beginning readers is easy to read, but its simplicity results in a bare-bones treatment. The illustrations are cartoony and somewhat uneven: King Menelaus looks appropriately grumpy and Helen both coy and sultry, but the action scenes are a bit wooden. Pronunciation guides assist readers with Greek names. (c) Copyright 2015. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
