Personal response and rating: One of the students in my fieldwork classroom was reading this book and I was able to skim along with him. I thought it had a really cool way of getting students interested in learning about mythology through a modern take, although I’m not that huge on mythology, personally. Rating: 3

Question: What is an ancient civilization? Does anyone know what a myth is?
