Cyclops

Ancient Greek myths contain stories of frightening one-eyed giants—the Cyclopes. This volume geared for basic readers describes these creatures and their disgusting habits, tells the famous story of how the hero Odysseus outwitted a cyclops, and traces images of the Cyclopes in movies and other modern cultural venues.

Critical praise from School Library Journal: These four volumes describe the mythological and legendary origins of each monster, as well as representations of the creatures in modern film, television, and toys. Numerous full-color and black-and-white reproductions of paintings, sculptures, drawings, and movie and television stills are placed carefully in the appropriate spots within the texts. The books are clearly written and contain fascinating information that will satisfy both casual browsers and serious report writers.—Ginny Gustin, Sonoma County Library System, Santa Rosa, CA
