The Lovereading4Kids comment

Book and CD. Great feats of both heroism and cruelty are recorded in these powerful and dramatic stories which have influenced storytelling ever since. In this collection the myths are gathered together into a sequence starting with the making of the universe and ending with the death of Heracles. Included are stories about the mighty Poseidon the god of the sea, Zeus the king of heaven and Hades the lord of the underworld. In addition to a terrific Introduction by contemporary writer Rick Riordan, there is also additional material detailing information on the main characters as well as a glossary of unusual Greek words.

Tales of the Greek Heroes (audio-CD) by Roger Green

In the time before man there were many gods on Mount Olympus. Then man was created out of clay by Zeus and taught wisdom by Prometheus, although he also learnt both cruelty and courage. The bravest of these men became the heroes of Greece.

Here, among many others, are tales of Perseus, who killed the Gorgon Medusa, Jason, who brought home the Golden Fleece, Heracles, who undertook the twelve labours, and Theseus, who slew the minotaur.
