Two of these three stories are readily found in other locations, but I wanted to see Crane's illustrations. They have a different 'feeling,' than do the illustrations in modern books.

There was a strong female character and the story was interesting. I kept wondering what was coming next. A little bit like Hercules in the tasks set and how easily the brother [...]

This only took a couple minutes to read but it was very enjoyable. My favorite part of this was the illustrations. They are done in a beautiful greek style and are very eye catching. It was great to see the stories imagined in a different way by this great artist.
