The enduring popularity of Greek mythology

As a girl, I enjoyed hearing tales of mythology told by my Greek father, so it is with great pleasure that I see that young people today continue to enjoy these engrossing tales and that they provide the inspiration for so many chapter books, comics, movies and more.

If you are a fan of Greek mythology, you are surely already familiar with Rick Riordan! If you'd like to explore further, here are just a few of the many other fine books and websites you might want to check out:

Many titles by Geraldine McCaughrean
The Mythlopedia series
Olympians by George O'Connor

Encyclopedia of Greek Mythology
Mitología para niños (in Spanish!)
Winged Sandals

If I didn't include one of your favorites, please feel free to share it in a comment!
