Summary Meet the Greek gods as you have never seen them--in LEGO form! Enjoy these fascinating myths, reimagined through elaborate scenes and colorful LEGO bricks in one thousand color photographs! This book shares a unique retelling of some of the most widely known and loved Greek myths, from the stories of Athena, Poseidon, and Pandora to the twelve labors of Hercules. Watch Athena spring from the head of Zeus, and see Poseidon as he rules the seas with his mighty trident. Maintain hope with Pandora as her curiosity gets the best of her, and beware the Nemean Lion as Hercules repents for his misdeeds. Be awestruck by the amazing Mount Olympus made completely from LEGO bricks! These exciting retellings of ancient tales are consistent with the mythology behind them, while also capturing the creativity and whimsy of the stories with elaborate brick scenery. Brick Greek Myths will be a delight for LEGO tinkerers of all ages, a fun introduction to the tales for young readers, and an enchanting return to the stories for even the most devoted admirer of mythology.
