Greek Myths 4 Kids Presents: CASE FILES
FROM THE HERCULES DETECTIVE AGENCY
By Lin & Don Donn: Case Files from The Hercules Detective Agency
Thousands of years ago, the ancient Greeks told wonderful stories about their many gods, goddesses and magical beings. These stories are called myths. Each Greek god had one or more magical powers. The ancient Greeks believed their gods used their magical powers for good, for trickery, and for adventure.
Although the ancient Greek storytellers were quite inventive, and each told a myth in their own way, each god's personality and powers remained the same from story to story. That's because the ancient Greek people knew their gods well. So, no matter who was telling the story, Zeus was always king; Hera was always jealous; and so it went.
Welcome to the magical world of ancient Greek myths - some told thousands of years ago, and some written down only yesterday.
