 Author’s Note
Many versions of the Greek myths exist as a result of their beingretold through the centuries. The stories in this book are generallyconsistent with popular versions for this age group; however, theyhave been adapted to fit the mini-book format and differ in partsfrom other retellings. For example, the ending of “Curiosity and theBox” offers a nontraditional interpretation of how hope survives.
